Submarine Sonar Storage
Lockheed Martin Selects PT’s Storage Blade for Royal Navy Submarine Sonar Systems
Lockheed Martin’s Undersea Systems business unit utilizes PT’s CPC5910 CompactPCI storage blades for use in an upgrade program for sonar systems onboard Royal Navy submarines. The CPC5910 is a SATA storage blade that supports 800 GB of RAID capacity. Each blade features two 3.5” enterprise class SATA hard drives that support board-level hot-swap and drive-level hot-swap for complete flexibility and high reliability.
The blades are a key element in improving the storage technology used with Royal Navy sonar systems. This upgrading program utilizes Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products that provide military electronic systems with open-architecture capabilities for easier and more rapid transition to newer technologies. "This important project win is another example of how our CompactPCI products are effectively utilized in COTS programs by leading manufacturers developing state-of-the-art electronic systems for military as well as aerospace and other defense applications," said PT Vice President of Sales and Marketing Edward Bizari.
