Curtiss-Wright Doubles the Storage Capacity of its NSA CSfC Components List Approved DTS1 Storage Device to 8TB

ASHBURN, Va. – September 21, 2020 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division, a trusted leading supplier of rugged data storage and protection solutions, announced that it has doubled the maximum storage capacity of the Removable Memory Cartridge (RMC) used in its Data Transport System (DTS1) Network Attached Storage (NAS) device from 4TB to 8TB. With the increased storage capacity the NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Components List approved  DTS1 can now support far longer missions for storing classified data on manned and unmanned vehicles. The DTS1, the embedded industry’s first commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) data-at-rest (DAR) storage solution to support two layers of full disk encryption (FDE) in a single device, is the only Common Criteria-certified NAS solution approved by the NSA and approved by NATO with two certified encryption layers. Curtiss-Wright recently announced the addition of support for a MIL-STD-1275 compliant filter on the DTS1 to mitigate against high voltage spikes, long voltage surges, and ripples that can reduce performance and reliability. Compliance with MIL-STD-1275 ensures system integrators that in addition to airborne applications, the DTS1 can also be dependably deployed in land vehicle applications.
