DTS3: 3-Slot Rugged Network Attached File Server
The Data Transport System 3-slot (DTS3) is a rugged Network Attached Storage (NAS) file server for use in mobile vehicles, field ground stations, and aircraft. The DTS3 is easily integrated into network-centric systems providing an easy-to-use, turn-key, rugged Network File Server (NFS). The system houses three Removable Memory Cartridges (RMC) that provide a quick offload of data. The RMC can be easily removed from one DTS3 and installed into any other DTS3 providing full data transfer seamlessly between one or more networks in separate locations (e.g. ground-vehicle-ground).
Most modern vehicles, aircraft, and systems are built around a network-centric architecture. The backbone of such systems is Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) which operates at 1.25 Gb/s. Ethernet is ubiquitous with extensive industry support including hardware and software.
With a network switch (or redundant switches) in the middle of the system, any network-enabled device can communicate with any other similar device. NAS, like the DTS3, allows any client to retrieve stored data or save newly captured data. A NAS provides size, weight, and power (SWaP) advantages by negating the need for storage in each computer, display, or management device. These network clients can use the DTS3 to store sensor or maintenance data and to retrieve the latest mission and digital map data and can be different operating systems (Linux, VxWorks, Windows, etc) or CPU’s as long as they support industry-standard protocols like NFS, CIFS, FTP, or HTTP.
