Fast, Efficient PCIe/NVMe Data Transfer

The SHIPS rugged storage module is the centerpiece of the SHIPS ecosystem, which is designed to bring robust removability and data transport at NVMe speeds between down-range, tactical edge, office, and command and control. An interoperable storage device that fits in the palm of your hand, SHIPS storage modules can be used with any device with a SHIPS receiving frame as well as custom devices developed to SHIPS specifications.

Platform Interoperability

The SHIPS platform can be incorporated into everything from workstations and desktops to vehicles, aircraft, drones, and tactical systems. No longer do OEMs and integrators need to restrict themselves to legacy drive bay standards for removable NVMe storage.

FIPS 140-2 L2

FIPS 140-2 L2 includes AES 256-bit encryption and random key generation at the hardware level, ensuring fast file access without any overhead. When combined with third-party pre-boot authentication, your data is protected from physical theft. 

Address critical data governance and privacy requirements

This drive is FIPS-Certified by NIST and is NIAP Compliant. These are the same standards used by the U.S. government to keep data secure to meet requirements imposed by CMMC, HIPAA, GDPR, GLBA, PCI-DSS, and CCPA. Our drives are compared against the NIAP Full Drive Encryption/Encryption Engine Common Criteria (CC) collaborative Protection Profile (cPP) which ensures full compliance with the cPP security requirements.

Ruggedized Protection

The SHIPS Q80R rugged storage module is designed and tested to military specifications (MIL-461, DO-160, MIL-810) and is suitable for environments requiring dust-proof, water-proof, and/or extended temperature storage modules.

Commercial Solutions for Classified

All DIGISTOR FIPS SEDs—including those incorporated into SHIPS storage modules—are listed on the NSA CSfC Component List for hardware full drive encryption, which allows DoD, Federal agencies, and critical infrastructure to protect mission critical and classified data using commercial solutions.

NIAP Compliant, TAA Compliant, and Common Criteria Certified

SHIPS Q80R FIPS storage modules are NIAP-compliant (VID #11297), TAA compliant, and have been listed by NIST as FIPS-Certified storage devices with NIST Certificate #3926, ensuring they meet most stringent cybersecurity standards.

Robust Removability

The SHIPS Q80R rugged storage module supports up to 10,000 insertions (compared to the tens of insertions found in competitive alternatives).

Extraordinary Performance

SHIPS Q80R rugged storage modules are available in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities and run at PCIe Gen 3 speeds.
