Abstract:

ABSTRACT: Crossfield Technology proposes the development of a high-performance Solid State Disk (SSD) for on-board sensor data storage along with Ground Support Equipment (GSE) to download data from the SSD to a secondary data storage system. Crossfield's approach will provide increased bandwidth and storage capacity to on-board sensor data acquisition systems, and most importantly, enable ultra-high-speed download of data. Crossfield"s proposed solution will provide more than an order of magnitude faster download speed than the current implementation (50 Gbps versus the current<1.5 Gbps). The GSE will use Crossfield's network interface to provide a pluggable fiber optic link between the on-board SSD and secondary storage. Crossfield"s network interface supports 40/56G InfiniBand and 1/10/40G Ethernet network technology, with effective data transfer bandwidths up to 50 Gbps. BENEFIT: The solid state disk will support ultra-fast data acquisition applications such as 4K video recording, GSPS transient digitizers, and medical image recording (MRI, PET/CT scan, digital X-Rays). The 56G network interface will enable high-rate sensors and transducers to be connected to high-speed networks.
