Small, Rugged Storage Device is Ideal for Secure, Portable Local Storage in Harsh Military Environments
MilSource, a U.S. distributor of military-grade Ethernet connectivity solutions, today announced availability of Techaya’s MILTECH M64. The Military-grade, IP68-rated, miniature USB3 device can be used to securely upload or download data for communications, navigation, and computing applications on vetronic, avionic, shipboard and defense systems.
The MILTECH M64 comes with a variety of mechanical enhancements to ensure security, reliability, usability, and performance in harsh environments. With 64 GB of storage capacities, security features include:
- Secure erase via external GPIO;
- Read/write indication via external GPIO;
- Optional internal battery to support self-powered secure erase operation
The device is designed to meet MIL-STD-810F airborne and ground environmental compliance, and serves as a robust COTS solution for rugged USB storage. The unit supports USB 3.0 high-speed signals, with backward compatibility to USB 2.0.
“The MILTECH M64 was ingeniously designed to withstand harsh environments, where traditional portable storage has neither the security features nor the ruggedness to stand up to heat, vibration and other environment elements,” said Ronen Isaac, general manager of MilSource. “The technology in the MILTECH M64 significantly enhances data protection and is really designed with ruggedness in mind. For example, the unique scoop-proof design prevents pins from being bent or contacts from being electrically shorted during mating — a key hazard in rugged environments.”
