ASHBURN, Va., 24 June 2016. The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the Data Transport System 1-Slot (DTS1) small form factor SWaP-optimized data storage solution for storing large amounts of data on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV), and intelligence surveillance reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft.

The single-slot network attached storage (NAS) device weighs 4 pounds and measures 1.5 by 5 by 6.5 inches. It delivers as much as 2 terabytes of storage and supports advanced encryption to protect critical data-at-rest.

Because the DTS1 functions as a NAS file server it helps system designers reduce SWaP by eliminating the need for independent storage in each of the platform's computer, display, or management devices.

It enables network-enabled devices to communicate with other similar device, to retrieve stored data, or save captured data. Networked devices using heterogeneous operating systems like Linux, VxWorks, or Windows -- or CPUs that support industry standard protocols like NFS, CIFS, FTP, or HTTP -- can share and store data through the DTS1.

The DTS1 is for rugged applications that require the storage, removal, and transport of critical data such as cockpit data, ISR, mobile applications, heavy industry, and video/audio data collection.
