Safe guarding Mission Critical Data with Secure Solid State Drives

Protecting Data

Today’s military sensor and other high-performing processing systems generate massive amounts of data. Just a few years ago, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) released details of Autonomous Real-time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance (ARGUS-IS), that used an 18 Giga-Pixel camera capable of generating image sensor data at a rate of more than 30 GB per second. While it is typical to compress or process a small portion of the image, there are advantages to saving the raw data for future analysis. Currently, NAND flash is the only practical storage media capable of storing such large amounts of data in realtime. For this reason, it’s not surprising that NAND flash, packaged as a Solid State Drive (SSD), are now a common component in defense equipment. Add security and SSDs become the ideal big-data secure storage solution for defense applications.
