The FSM-C is for systems that require data transport, such as mission computers, sensor processors, mission recorders, instrumentation recorders, and embedded ISR applications.
Because the Vortex FSM-C uses industry-standard direct-attached SATA SSDs it eases technology refresh, reduces the risk of obsolescence, and makes the board essentially "plug-and-play," company officials say.
The data storage module also eliminates the need for system integrators to deal with software drivers, operating systems, or processor types.
The FSM-C's internal SSD can be provided with secure erase or MIL Secure Erase. When provisioned, these has can be initiated by an ATA command over the SATA lane. A variety of optional MIL Secure Erase algorithms also can be provided.
For those applications that require removable storage with high level data protection, we offer our Vortex FSM, a rugged 3U VPX FIPS 140-2 certified 1 terabytes memory module with on-module support for AES256-bit encryption.
