Rincon Research Corporation’s MountainBrik™ RAID and Acquisition (MBRA) systems are becoming deprecated. The systesms are compact, high-speed RAID storage solutions with integrated signal acquisition.

Recordings can be done in single shot or in looped mode. In looped mode, new data overwrites older data for indefinite recording duration. Six solid-state disks are easily removable from the top of the chassis to facilitate quick drive swaps in the field for additional storage.

The recorded data playback feature permits the user to reproduce an analog output of recorded data streams. Recorded data is time tagged when the system is connected to external time/frequency sources.

The MBRA systems have two independent inputs that can be used simultaneously. The IF model includes two independent, sub-band tuners that can be deployed on either of the input channels. The sub-band tuners support output bandwidths from 21 kHz to 42 MHz. An intuitive Java-based command and control interface supports operation using Windows, OS X, and Linux platforms.
