DAYTON, Ohio, 14 June 2011. Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems in Dayton, Ohio, is introducing the 3U VPX Flash Storage Module (VPX3-1TB) rugged solid state drive for space-, weight-, and power (SWaP)-constrained military applications. The VPX3-1TB SATA storage card has 1 terabyte of SLC NAND flash memory, can be configured as a JBOD or RAID, and provides NIST-certified 256-bit AES data encryption.This conduction-cooled module is available in military ruggedization configurations, including Levels 100 and 200. The solid-state drive is organized in four banks of 256 gigabytes each in a 1-inch-pitch 3U VPX module that comes in VITA 46 and VITA 48.2 REDI variants. Flash can be configured to appear to the host processor as four separate SATA drives or one SATA drive with hardware RAID0 support. The memory card also has industry-standard wear leveling and bad block management.

Features include 28 percent over-provisioning to enhance storage endurance; 160 megabyte-per-second RAID0 performance or 100 megabytes per second per port JBOD; interoperability with Windows, Linux, or VxWorks software operating systems; RS-232 or I2C host management; and tool-less wedgelocks.
