Phalanx II NAS Removable

Phalanx II

The Phalanx II is SWaP optimized and provides high performance, high capacity and secure data storage for Unmanned Aerial, Underwater and Surface Vehicles (UAVs, UUVs and USVs) and Manned Airborne ISR applications.

This small form factor NAS weighs less than ten pounds, provides up to 32TB of storage capacity with two Solid State Disks (SSDs) and supports RAID 0 (striping) and RAID 1 (mirroring). System configuration and management is provided via a convenient web based GUI or CLI.

The Phalanx II houses two Removable Media Modules (RMMs) that can be removed quickly to offload data and declassify the system. The RMMs can be moved to separate locations and plugged into another Phalanx II NAS (or compatible ground station) on any other network.

When used in conjunction with a network switch, the Phalanx II can communicate with any other network enabled device to store and retrieve data. This eliminates the need for separate direct attached storage devices for each computer or workstation in a network-centric environment.
