Research Institution
Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance the development in Phase II of the new highly secure and scalable Miniature Encrypted Random Addressing Holographic Memory Cube (HMC) Data Storage (MERAH) technology. Phase I work conclusively demonstrated MERAH feasibility through design, assembly, and testing of a TRL-4 HMC-based prototype designed without any moving parts. The modeling, simulation, and experimentation proved that a ruggedized 8 TB erasable storage system is achievable in a sugar-cube-sized HMC with 12/24 VDC
