XCOR Aerospace and Immortal Data Incorporated have entered into a licensing agreement having Immortal Data further developing and commercializing the ShipsLog software, the data acquisition system for the XCOR Lynx Space Plane and its engine test stand.

After enhancement and integration, ShipsLog will be a key element of a tail to nose aerospace data collection, storage and display solution offered by Immortal Data. Development efforts will begin immediately at Immortal Data facilities in Midland, TX, a facility funded by Midland Development Corporation, at the Midland International Air and Space Port.

The agreement is the outgrowth of a long, fruitful and evolving relationship between Immortal Data and XCOR that has extended over most of this decade. Immortal Data provided the real time systems skills to design and integrate ShipsLog with the Lynx engine and avionics as well as the initial design for secure inviolable data storage for the Lynx, utilizing IDI's patented ShipsStore technology, a form of distributed "black box" that protects data from damage and loss.

XCOR's President, Jay Gibson stated "ShipsLog is field proven and has operated flawlessly, delivering high rate live and stored data from critical tests of the XCOR Lynx LOX/Kerosene engines.

In this dynamic environment, it's essential to get the best data, first time every time - and the key parameters must be available to provide the team real time information with which to make critical decisions. The applications for this product go well beyond our small piece of the aerospace industry."

According to Dale Amon, President of Immortal Data, "ShipsLog, software, in conjunction with Linux-based industrial computing appliances, is capable of affordably reading and storing data from hundreds of sensors on multiple data acquisition boxes at synchronous rates up to 3200 samples per second. Inclusion of this proven software in our system is a key move forward for Immortal Data."
