For applications that need to protect large amounts of data

The DTS1 is the embedded industry’s first commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) data-at-rest (DAR) network attached storage (NAS) solution that supports two layers of full disk encryption (FDE) in a single device.

Modern unmanned vehicles, ISR aircraft, and mobile ground vehicles are built around a network-centric architecture. The backbone of such systems is Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), operating at 1.25 gigabits per second. With a network switch (or redundant switches) in the middle of the system, any network-enabled device can communicate with any other similar device. In addition, NAS devices like the DTS1 allow any client to retrieve stored files or save new captured files.

The secure small form factor DTS1 stores and protects large amounts of classified data on helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV), unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), and intelligence surveillance reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft. With the addition of an optional MIL-STD-1275 filter that protects against power supply spikes and surges, the DTS1 is also the first Common Criteria certified NAS, optimized for deployed ground vehicle operations.

Hardware and Software Full Disk Encryption

Having received Common Criteria (CC) certification, the hardware and software FDE layers used in the DTS1 are currently listed on the United States NIAP Product Compliant ListNSA’s CSfC Components List, and the International Common Criteria Certified Products List, and the NATO Information Assurance Product Catalogue (NIAPC). Selecting an approved device enables system architects to significantly reduce the time, cost, and program risk associated with developing an approved encryption solution.

Removable Memory Cartridge (RMC)

The rugged NAS is easily integrated into network-centric systems and houses one Removable Memory Cartridge (RMC), which is considered unclassified when in transport. The RMC can be easily removed from one DTS1 and installed into any other DTS1 providing complete, seamless data transfer between one or more networks in separate locations (e.g., from ground to vehicle to ground), providing quick data offloading.


A NAS device provides SWaP advantages by negating the need for local storage in each computer, display, or management device. These network clients can use the DTS1 to store sensor or maintenance data and retrieve the latest mission and digital map data. Supporting industry standard NAS protocols like NFS, CIFS, FTP, or HTTP, enables the clients to use different operating systems (Linux®, VxWorks®, Windows®, etc.) or CPUs (PPC, Intel®, Arm®, etc.), permitting system design flexibility.
