TeleCommunication Systems has updated its solid-state drives that work to help users access data and storage in harsh environments.
The Proteus 2 and Galatea 2 have a 500-megabit-per-second throughput and offer twice the speed of the last version, TCS said Tuesday.
Bill Bettencourt, vice president for space and component technology at TCS, said the company aimed to address performance, capacity and obsolescence issues with the updates.
Both drives now have 512-gigabit single-level cells and up to 1 terabyte for multilevel cell memory.
TCS says the new memory provides four times the storage of Proteus Plus.
The ruggedized drives also have commercial-grade encoding, updated encryption standard and are compliant with the Opal storage specification from the Trusted Computing Group.
TCS is presenting the new features of the updated SSDs at the ongoing AIAA/USU conference on small satellites in Logan, Utah.
