Rugged, Military Grade SATA SSDs and Modules

Curtiss-Wright’s family of rugged SATA drives enables solid state media to be incorporated in embedded computing solutions for a wide range of applications.

Our rugged SATA SSD module is a high performance, reliable and power-efficient multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash solid state drive (SSD) solution that provides 2 TB storage. And our range of removable flash storage drives are based off industry standard 2.5” SATA SSDs with 100k insertion cycle connectors, mitigating obsolescence issues while ensuring a long program life.

Fielded across the world on varying platforms, our rugged SATA solutions enable data storage devices to attach directly to the host, enabling fast communication. Scalable solutions that provide gigabytes to terabytes of secure data storage, our removable SSD drives seamlessly integrate with our network attached storage (NAS) systems.

With AES-256 bit encryption and varying levels of security approaches available, Curtiss-Wright is a leader in rugged SATA data encryption solutions for defense and aerospace applications.  To learn more about data-at-rest (DAR) encryption and how we are helping programs meet their DAR security requirements, visit our DAR knowledge center and read our latest white papers.

For data upload and offload, our docking stations have been developed to seamlessly integrate with our data drives.  They provide a convenient method to simultaneously load mission or map data on to multiple drives, or retrieve the data after the mission.
