    The specialists of IAC worked on deciphering the parametric recorder all night. Because of the damage, specialists had to completely disassemble the protected memory modules, dismantling the storage media.

    They managed to get the presented data due to the fact that 16 flights of An-148, including the last one, were kept on the black box.

    "After installing the parametric recorder data carrier in the technological ground device and restoring the information and power connections (trains), all the information of the on-board parametric recorder was successfully copied," the IAC noted.
