FREMONT, Calif., 5 Aug. 2015. Elma Electronic Inc. in Fremont, Calif., is introducing the StorSys-3000 high-capacity network attached storage (NAS) mission system that withstands harsh, rugged environments for IP-based military and defense applications.

The 3U VPX computer includes dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports with integrated TCP/IP offload engines. These ports, as well as additional I/O such as a VGA, two USB 2.0, three GPIO and an additional two Gigabit Ethernet ports, flow through MIL-C-38999 connectors on the front end.

The solid-state data storage unit is for high-bandwidth, intensive data processing and storage applications in military applications like electronic warfare (EW), radar, thermal, hyperspectral, and sonar imaging, as well as signals intelligence (SIGINT).

A four slot storage array supports more than eight terabytes of solid state MLC storage with RAID protection and high-speed data access speeds of 1.2 gigabytes per second. The Intel Gen 3 Core i7 CPU clocks in at 2.5 GHz.

Designed for extended temperature ranges from -40 to 75 degrees Celsius, the system incorporates fanless, conduction cooling and a high CFM front-to-back air flow for added heat dissipation. An IP65 rating and high ingress protection ensures internal and external system reliability.
