HAYWARD, Calif. – Ampex Data Systems Corp. in Hayward, Calif., is introducing the TuffServ 540 ruggednetwork attached data storage device for aerospace and defense applications where performance cannot be sacrificed, regardless of mounting location.

Designed with a scalable architecture consistent with the Ampex Common Compute Environment (ACCE), the system combines sustained throughput of 800 megabytes per second, maximum throughput of 1000 megabytes per second, and memory module capacity of 16 terabytes.

The TuffServ 540 has a volume of 8.5 by 4.25 by 3 inches, and weighs less than 10 pounds. It meets harsh MIL-SPEC environmental qualifications, and offers interfaces that include multi-gigabit Ethernet, 10 gigabit optical Ethernet, sFPDP, mixed data formats, point-to-point, and Chapter 10/11.

Ampex has been selected by two different U.S. Prime Defense contractors for this NAS system, one for a pod-based system and another for a UAS-based platform. Both applications are for real-time radar acquisition, company officials say.
