ASHBURN, Va. – The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the Unattended Network Storage Ground Station network attached storage (NAS) system for use with unattended network storage.
This data storage system can serve as a ground station NAS for data off-load and decryption from a deployed unattended network storage, a ground station for up-load and encryption of mission, map, and boot files to a deployed unattended network storage, and as a standalone mobile intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) system.
The Unattended Network Storage Ground Station provides a ground-based complement to its popular deployable unattended network storage system. It supports NSA Type 1 encryption for data at rest using the General Dynamics Mission Systems KG-204 ProtecD@R Multi-Platform Encryptor.
The device with information security stores as much as 32 terabytes of classified data on removable storage modules that transport data between the Unattended Network Storage Ground Station and deployed unattended network storage.
The Unattended Network Storage Ground Station captures data via NFS, CIFS, iSCSI, HTTP, and FTP industry-standard network storage protocols through four 10 Gigabit Ethernet at speeds to 2 gigabytes per second.
The Unattended Network Storage Ground Station can decrypt mission data for post-mission analysis.
As the number of sensors on surveillance unmanned vehicles continues to proliferate, protecting the critical data has grown in significance. The Unattended Network Storage Ground Station helps provide top-secret and sensitive compartmented information encryption to protect data at rest.
It also prevents unauthorized access to classified information if the unattended platform is lost or stolen. For more information contact Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions online at www.curtisswrightds.com.
