Appareo’s line of flight data monitoring solutions includes lightweight storage devices that are flexible for use in a broad range of aircraft types.

Appareo can customize and manufacture a module that is crash-survivable, remote-mountable, and sized to the needs of your specific aircraft. These modules are ideal for aircraft that are not required to carry large, heavy, ED-112 compliant data recorders; rather, they’re for applications where reliable survivability of flight data provides business value in liability limitation and data to assist accident investigations.


The Appareo modules were designed to be easily incorporated into a variety of aircraft types, automatically accommodating your aircraft bus speed and easily configurable to your recording preferences with the Appareo configuration utility. Once installed, the unit can record more than 500 parameters per second to the non-complicated, solid-state, memory within the device.

Although typically used to collect parametric data from ARINC 429 buses or other serial interfaces, the modules can also be configured to collect CVR data or imagery.


The Recoverable Data Module, model 300 (RDM-300) is a lightweight, flexible, and affordable crash-hardened memory storage device that is built with a rugged and compact enclosure to withstand intense DO-160G category tests to ensure the survival of critical flight data. Weighing less than 2 pounds, the module perfectly balances rigorous survivability needs while optimizing the size and weight of the product.
