Data Transfer Systems

Military-grade data storage and transfer

The L3 Series 4 Data Transfer System, DTS, provides secure data storage and retrieval in a rugged and compact form factor. It is based on 2.5-inch SATA flash disks that lock securely into an MS25212C-standard, CDU-style, unit within aircraft, and a dedicated desktop ground support unit. The system operates in the harshest environments and meets the most demanding requirements, including both MIL-STD-810 and RTCA DO-160.

Reliable and Self-Contained

The system can store and retrieve up to 480 GBytes of data from 2.5-inch SATA flash disks that lock securely into an MS25212C-standard, CDU-style, unit within aircraft, and a dedicated desktop ground support unit. The system operates in the harshest environments and meets the most demanding requirements, including both MIL-STD-810 and RTCA DO-160.

Lightweight, Secure and Flexible

The lightweight units have door-open detection which shuts down any read/write activity, preventing data corruption, and with high-speed erase and sanitize functions available, your data is not only secure, but can be securely removed from the flash disks. The airborne units are available with either SATA or USB interfaces, configured for 28 VDC or 5 VDC. The ground unit can also have either SATA or USB and is powered by 110–220 VAC.
