ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., is announcing customer engagements for the company's TRRUST-Stor secure solid-state drive (SSD) for trusted computing applications that need on-board high-speed secure storage in SWaP-constrained environments such as aircraft, unmanned systems, and mobile ground applications -- including secure laptop and tablet computers.

Optimized for embedded computing applications in forward-deployed defense environments, the SSD is available in host-accessible capacities to 256 gigabytes. It features triple-level cell (TLC) NAND flash memory operating in single-level cell (SLC) mode combined with advanced BuiltSECURE algorithms in a ruggedized 22-by-32-millimeter ball-grid array (BGA) package.

The device's ARMOR 6 processor integrates certified cryptographic algorithms, encryption key purge, device sanitization, and non-thermal self-destruct capabilities into one device.

Mercury has custom-engineered a variant of its ARMOR processor for commercial memory technology, enabling it to operate in SLC mode for high reliability and long-term endurance while sustaining high-speed read/write operations.

Additionally, Mercury has embedded a suite of customizable self-destruct protocols that are initiated and executed without the use chemical reactions or heat. These protocols safely render the device inoperable in the event of device capture and reverse-engineering attempts by adversaries.

Mercury's ARMOR processor and its entire portfolio of secure storage solutions are designed and manufactured in a Defense Microelectronics Activity (DMEA)-accredited facility for design, packaging, test and broker services.
