VMETRO data recorders, available from Dedicated Systems Australia , have been specifically developed for supporting Lockheed Martin’s work on the F-35 Lightning II test laboratory. These data recorders are based on VMETRO’s Vortex VME Open Data Recording platform. The Vortex system would be incorporated into Lockheed Martin’s instrumentation and test plan for Lightning II.
The F-35 Lightning II Programme (also known as the Joint Strike Fighter Programme) is the Department of Defense's focal point for defining affordable next-generation strike aircraft weapon systems for the Navy, Air Force, Marines, and our allies. The F-35 is the next generation strike fighter bringing cutting-edge technologies to the battlespace of the future. The aircraft’s advanced stealth, integrated avionics, autonomic logistics, propulsion systems and firepower will ensure that the F-35 is an affordable, lethal, supportable and survivable aircraft ever to be used by so many war fighters across the globe.
