DTS1 (Data Transport System) – NIAP Common Criteria certified, NSA CSfC approved

The DTS1 is the embedded industry’s first COTS data-at-rest (DAR) Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution designed to support two layers of full disk encryption (FDE) in a single device. Having received Common Criteria (CC) certification, the hardware and software FDE layers used in the DTS1 are now currently listed on the United States NIAP Product Compliant List and as well as the NSA’s CSfC Components List. Selecting a pre-approved device from the CSfC Components List enables system architects to greatly reduce the time and cost needed to design a COTS encryption solution, while also greatly reducing their program risk.

The rugged small form factor DTS1 is designed to store and protect large amounts of classified data on helicopters, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV), Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV), and Intelligence Surveillance Reconnaissance (ISR) DAR. The rugged network file server is easily integrated into network-centric systems and houses one Removable Memory Cartridge (RMC) with two layers of AES256 encryption. The RMC can be easily removed from one DTS1 and installed into any other DTS1 providing full, seamless, data transfer between one or more networks in separate locations (e.g. from ground to vehicle to ground), providing quick data offloading.

Net-Centric Architecture

ISR aircraft and mobile ground vehicles are built around a network-centric architecture. The backbone of such systems is Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) operating at 1.25 gigabits per second. With a network switch (or redundant switches) in the middle of the system, any network-enabled device can communicate with any other similar device. NAS devices like the DTS1 allow any client to retrieve stored files or save new captured files. A NAS device provides size, weight and power (SWaP) advantages by negating the need for local storage in each computer, display, or management device. These network clients can use the DTS1 to store sensor or maintenance data and to retrieve the latest mission and digital map data. Supporting industry standard NAS protocols like NFS,CIFS, FTP, or HTTP, enables the clients to use different operating systems (Linux, VxWorks, Windows, etc) or CPUs (PPC, Intel, Arm, etc), permitting system design flexibility.
