Flight operations rely heavily on back-up power, especially when it comes to protecting flight data for routine or emergency evaluations. The L3Harris Flange-mounted Recorder Independent Power Supply (RIPS) is designed to provide essential back-up battery power for Cockpit Voice Recorders (CVRs). In accordance with FAA requirements, RIPS provide 10 minutes of independent back-up power with when standard aircraft power is interrupted or lost, ensuring continuity of critical CVR operation.
