Fast, Efficient PCIe/NVMe Data Transfer

Eject a SHIPS storage module from this QX118 receiving frame on one compute device and ingest it into another to quickly transfer data at NVMe speeds between down-range, tactical edge, office, and command and control.

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.

Slim Design

The QX118 receiving frame fits in the optical bay – replacing a DVD drive – making it a convenient way to introduce NVMe removability to desktops, workstations, or other systems.

Full, Future-Proofed Power

The QX118 receiving frame ingests the SHIPS Q80 storage module (sold separately), which is built to the PCIe 3.0 spec, making it easy to futureproof your system.

Robust Removability

Up to 10,000 insertions (compared to the tens of insertions found in competitive alternatives)
