Crystal Group has unveiled a military-grade Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution for hardware-level protection of classified data.

The rugged and secure high-performance storage solution is designed to cater to data classified as top secret and below.

It has been designed keeping in mind the ‘dynamic environments of multi-domain battlefields’. The system will expand cybersecurity to the tactical edge.

Crystal Group will launch the solution at the ongoing Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference in Tampa, Florida, US.

The turnkey, scalable, multipurpose storage solution can provide FIPS 140-2 certified data encryption with near-zero latency.

Crystal Group Engineering executive vice-president Jim Shaw said: “With a secure, rugged NAS solution that dependably operates in all conditions and is optimised to process and store data at near-zero latency, our customers gain a tactical advantage and confidence that mission-critical data is protected.”

The system meets MIL-SPEC environmental performance and NIST compliance. It has low size, weight, and power (SWaP) and serves a range of defence applications.

The NAS solution consists of Fully Optimized Rugged Computer Equipment (FORCE) rugged storage server, RCS7450 network switch, small form factor rugged embedded computer and 19in rugged display.

These systems are integrated into a rugged transit case designed for mobile and tactical environments.

With end-to-end encryption and near-zero latency capabilities, the storage solution ensures secure, real-time data processing.

The FORCE rugged servers support tactical military deployments in volatile environments. The system can be configured with up to 12 different modules for high-speed communication and expanded storage capacity.

In June this year, Crystal Group achieved the milestone of delivering 15,000 rugged servers to the US Navy.
