Modular Approach to Rugged COTS Data Storage Selection White Paper

data storage

Data storage plays a key role in Defense and Aerospace deployed data gathering system applications. Data gathering and storage device components are frequently deployed in harsh military environments on-board platforms such as fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, and armored vehicles, all of which require a high level of system ruggedness. On these platforms, data storage devices are used to store critical and valuable data captured from sensors or subsystems during mission or operational exercises. This data is often sensitive and must be protected from unauthorized access during and after a mission.
