Special Purpose Solid State Drives

The combination of the best commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technology and proven military hardened design techniques adds up to the most rugged and durable solid-state disks available.


  • Rugged Anodized Aluminum Case
  • Rigid >1mm thick Printed Circuit Board mounted by 8 screws
  • Underfill on all Ball Grid Arrays
  • Industrial temperature SLC NAND Flash
  • Secure Erase with Configurable Erase Pins
  • Optional Conformal Coating and Gel-Fill
  • High Reliability Tin-Lead Solder (SnPb63)


  • Highest levels of Shock and Vibration resistance in the COTS industry, independently verified through Mil-STD-810 testing
  • High data retention and write endurance over a wide temperature range to ensure your data is there when you need it
  • Fast sanitization of confidential data with the ability to emulate legacy SSD drives
  • Extreme moisture, shock and vibration resistance
  • Long-term Reliability with no concern about “tin whiskers”

Comtech productions SSDs support PATA, mSATA, SlimSATA, SATA II/III, and PCIe interfaces to support customer requirements. Please contact us for custom interface requirements.


  • Form factors supported in production SSDs are:
  • 2.5” – fits standard 2.5 inch drive bay
  • mSATA – utilizes mSATA socket typically located on motherboard,
  • SlimSATA – utilizes standard SATA connector
  • M.2 – utilizes M.2 socket typically located on motherboard

Various secure erase options are offered:

  • Fast Erase (Security Erase Unit)
  • DOD 5220.22-M
  • DOD 5220.22- M Sup1
  • NSA 130-2
  • ARMY AR380-19
  • Navy NAVSO P-5239-26
  • Air Force AFSSI-5020
  • NSA 9-12
  • RCC-TG IRIG 106-07

Triton Series drives also offer Opal AES256 compliant disk encryption.

Comtech SSD drives are developed and independently tested to stringent criteria.

  • High Altitude: Operation at 80,000 feet
  • Mechanical Shock:
  • Operation ─ 40G@ 11ms, 3x in 6 direction
  • Fragility ─ 1,500G@ 0.5ms, 3x in 6 directions
  • Random Vibration: Operating ─ 16Grms, 20Hz to 2KHz, 1 hour per axis, 3 axes
  • Temperature Shock: -40°C to +85°C, 10 cycles

Additional Options:

  • Silicone Gel Fill Polymer encapsulates PCB assembly to provide immersion resistance and resist mechanical shock and dynamic vibration.
  • Conformal Coating ─ Thin film of silicone elastomer provides additional moisture resistance.
  • Component Staking ─ Epoxy anchors components to increase resistance to shock and vibration.
