The CALCULEX RAPTOR is a state-of-the-art high-speed fiber optic data recorder designed to meet and exceed modern military platform data acquisition, processing, and recording requirements. With its advanced fiber optic 24-channel input data rates that support 2 Gbps, 10 Gbps, and 25 Gbps per channel, the RAPTOR sets a new standard in high-speed data capture. Its ultra-high density Removable Memory Module (RMM) storage offers 132 TB capacity, which is expandable up to 640 TB. CALCULEX’s RMM proudly boasts the largest data storage capacity of any rugged recording device on the market.


In addition to its ultra-high density capture and storage, the RAPTOR is designed in compliance with the IRIG 106 standard and provides adherence to open architecture time-synchronization practices for precision data recording across multiple data sources. The RAPTOR is platform agnostic/adaptable through Telemetry Attributes Transfer Standard (TMATS) configuration files.

Key Features

24 Channels of Ultra-High Speed Fiber Optic I/O
RAPTOR recorders allow for real-time data acquisition at high speeds, capturing never-before-possible sensor data from both fiber channel and Ethernet channels. Never return to base without critical sensor performance data; RAPTOR ensures every event is recorded in full-fidelity for post-mission analysis.
132 TB Removable Memory Module Expandable to 640 TB
RAPTOR’s Removable Memory Module (RMM) is a game-changer in data acquisition storage systems. It provides the highest-capacity available on any rugged recorder, offering unrivaled flexibility and versatility for capturing, processing, and storing vast amounts of critical data.
36 GBps Data Write Speed w/ 72 GBps Roadmapped
One of the standout features of the RAPTOR is its Removable Memory Module write capabilities, which boasts a remarkable speed of 36 Gbps. with 72 GBps road mapped for the second generation release, the RAPTOR is poised further to revolutionize the standard for flight test instrumentation capture.
Open IRIG 106 Standard Compliant
The RAPTOR’s adherence to Open IRIG 106 Chapter 10 ensures multi-vendor interoperability and provides time-synchronized data packet formatting which integrates with numerous COTS and GOTS data analysis software packages
