INTRODUCTION
With any airplane crash, there are many unanswered questions as to what brought the plane down. Investigators turn to the airplane's flight data recorder. (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR), also known as "black boxes," for answers. In Flight 261, the FDR contained 48 parameters of flight data, and theCVR recorded a little more than 30 minutes of conversation and other audible cockpit noises.

PARTS OF BLACK-BOX
COCKPIT VOICE RECORDERS

FLIGHT DATA RECORDERS

COCKPIT VOICE RECORDERS

FLIGHT DATA RECORDERS


RECORDED PARAMETERS: Time Pressure altitude Airspeed Vertical acceleration Magnetic heading Control-column position Rudder-pedal position Control-wheel position Horizontal stabilizer Fuel flow

STORAGE MEDIA
SOLID-STATE TECHNOLOGY

MAGNETIC TAPE

RECORDING AND STORAGE(MAGNETIC TAPE)

SOLID-STATE TECHNOLOGY
Solid-state recorders are considered much more reliable than their magnetic-tape counterparts Solid state uses stacked arrays of memory chips boards are about 1.75 inches (4.45 cm) in diameter and 1 inch (2.54 cm) tall.

TRANSMISSION OF DATA

Data from both the CVR and FDR is stored on stacked

memory boards inside the crash-survivable memory unit (CSMU). All of the data collected by the airplane's sensors is sent to the flight-data acquisition unit (FDAU) at the front of the aircraft

HOW BLACKBOX SURVIVE (CSMU)


Basic protection elements are: Aluminum housing High-temperature insulation Stainless-steel shell

TESTING A CSMU
There are several tests that make up the crash-survival sequence: Crash impact Static crush Fire test Deep-sea submersion Salt-water submersion Fluid immersion

UNDERWATER LOCATOR BEACON


Black boxes are equipped with an underwater locator beacon (ULB). Cylinder is actually a beacon. Beacon sends out an ultrasonic pulse submergence sensor

RETRIEVING INFORMATION
This portable interface can allow investigators quick access to the data on a black box. With solid-state recorders
