Ampex Data Systems won a Lockheed Martin contract to provide the Ampex TuffServ 640 (TS640) Airborne NAS 10 Gigabit Ethernet Server/Recorders. The first systems will be used under a Foreign Military Sales contract for the P-3 aircraft platform. The P-3 Orion is a four-engine, turboprop, anti-submarine and maritime surveillance aircraft developed by Lockheed Martin for the U.S. Navy.

Under this contract, Ampex will provide TS640 file servers and support. The TS640 is a high-data-rate, multi-terabyte storage and compute platform. The TS 640 uses the common architecture found throughout the TuffServ series, and advances performance and scalability in a standard half-ATR package. Read/write speeds as fast as 1 gigabyte per second, 12.8 terabytes of removable solid-state memory, and standard dual 10-gigabit optical Ethernet ports are suitable for a wide variety of airborne and mobile applications.
