Abstract
ABSTRACT: RNET Technologies will develop a high-throughput multi-ported SSD drive to enable the usage of the proposed fast download SSD in existing data systems, while enabling ultra-fast post mission data downloading. This will allow existing SATA SSD RAID systems to transfer data to a storage system in a fraction of the time required to write the data over the SATA interface. This will be very useful in systems using a RAID array of SATA SSD drives during live missions, where the data needs to be efficiently transferred to backend systems at the conclusion of a mission. RNET will develop and fabricate the ruggedized multi-ported SSD board, and the associated software to enable efficient data transfer. The SSD board will contain high-throughput SSD controllers, multiple NAND memory devices, a RAID controller to parallelize data access, and a processing element (e.g., FPGA, CPU, Microcontroller) to provide"host mode"to enable post-mission data transfer. The board will also contain a standard SATA interface, and a high-throughput data interface. During runtime, the interface will be chosen automatically, enabling the SATA interface when the system is being used for data capture, and the high-throughput interface to automatically copy data from the device. BENEFIT: The product will find extensive use in the DoD surveillance platforms, and hence our plan is to transition the product to DoD Primes. We have made initial contacts with some of the Primes, who have provided a strong letter of support. We intend to interact with the Primes extensively after Phase I award.
