May 10, 2017
DALLAS. Officials at Phoenix International Systems introduced the Phalanx II rugged Network Attached Storage (NAS) data storage system, at this year's Xponential, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International?s (AUVSI) conference .
The Phalanx II (82mm x 215mm x 226.5mm) is designed with size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements in mind and provides secure data storage for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned underwater vehicles for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) applications.
It weighs less than six pounds, provides up to 16 TB of storage capacity with two solid-state disks (SSDs), and supports RAID 0 (mirroring) and RAID 1 (stripping). Hot-swap removable drives are optionally available. System configuration and management is provided via a web-based GUI or CLI.
Data security is addressed with optional support for AES-256 encryption and hardware and/or software triggered Data Elimination. The Phalanx II allows networked devices to share and store data using common network services: NFS (V3/V4), SBM/CIFS, FTP, TFTP, RSYNC and SSH. It supports a variety of network based file systems that allow multiple hosts to share and store information. Network connections are provided through five load balanced Gigabit Ethernet ports, and it can support dual optical 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports for low EMI susceptibility.
