4.5 TB 3U VPX Rad-Tolerant SSDR

On-orbit data storage, commercially available

Preserve up to 4.5 TB of data in radioactive environments

The RH304T solid-state data recorder (SSDR) enables immense storage capacity, high performance and long-term data integrity for applications with the potential for radiation exposure in space and on the ground, such as LEO satellites, high-altitude aircraft, airborne weapons and mission-critical ground computing systems. The RH304T utilizes enhanced error correction with a unique two-pass correction scheme and the latest generation 3D NAND in SLC mode, ensuring the highest possible reliability.
