Ampex announces contract with Boeing for B-52 Stratofortress


Ampex Data Systems, a division of Delta Information Systems, has won a fixed price contract with The Boeing Company in support of the US Air Force’s Commercial Engine Replacement Program (CERP) of the B-52 Stratofortress.

The Ampex Fault Maintenance Recorder will store critical information for the platform on its network file server. Ampex’s TuffCORD NAS device is part of the Ampex TuffServ product line of NAS systems and provides the foundation for the Fault Maintenance Recorder.

TuffServ’s are multi-functional devices for operation in harsh field, airborne, marine, and space environments. Capabilities include data acquisition and storage of video, radar, imagery, bus, and flight test instrumentation data.

TuffServ’s can also function as whole platform servers, mission computers, or supplemental processors.   Ampex will complete work at its Las Cruces, NM facility as well as at its Silicon Valley headquarters in Hayward, CA.

“Ampex has been a leader in data acquisition and storage in the aerospace market for decades. This program award will elevate our ability to support maintenance needs and cybersecurity software operating on Ampex ruggedized hardware,” said Nick Duran, vice president and director of sales, Ampex Data Systems.
