MARS (Memory Access Retrieval System) V1.0 Steering Committee Product Review

June 29, 2017

MARS interfaces directly to a flight recorders' memory board to read the chips one by one instead of having to substitute the memory into a working flight recorder bench unit (aka Golden Chassis).  MARS does not rely on the EEPROM status or the recorder firmware but reads the information directly from the memory chips to maximize the success of recovery from severely crash-damaged recorders.  MARS V1.0 will be delivered to the Saudi AIB in September 2017.  Pictured is the MARS Steering Committee after completing a function test of MARS V1.0 in anticipation of the delivery.  MARS V1.0 handles seven solid state flight recorder types at the memory board/chip level.  The Steering Committee is chaired by Ismai Kashkash, Engineering Director at the Saudi AIB who is holding the MARS V1.0 box.  Also on the Steering Committee are Directors from the National Research Council of Canada and the Transportation Safety Board of Canada as well as Plane Sciences who is developing MARS under contract to AIB.
