Editor:- March 31, 2015 - I've been looking at different aspects of power hold up schemes in mission critical non volatile memory systems for over 30 years.

But every time I revisit this vast topic and compare fresh examples from the market - I learn something a little bit new.

My new blog - Zero to three seconds - demonstrates the extreme range of hold up times now in the market inside leading edge 2.5" military flash SSDs. the article

Miltope to Design and Develop Sealed Disk for Tactical Aircarft
MONTGOMERY, AL - May 09, 2002 - Miltope Group Inc. announced today that they have been selected by Harris Corporation to design and develop a sealed disk system to be evaluated for potential use in the Harris Tactical Airborne Moving Map Capability ("TAMMAC") Digital Map Computer ("DMC").

The portion of the system to be developed and delivered by Miltope is the Internal Bulk Memory Module ("IBMM"). The Harris TAMMAC DMC has been selected as the standard digital map computer for all Navy and Marine Corps aircraft upgrades. This latest TAMMAC DMC enhancement will provide F/A-18E/F Super Hornet pilots with an advanced terrain awareness and avoidance system integrated with a real-time in-the-cockpit digital map display.

The initial development contract calls for the design, development and qualification of the IBMM system by the fourth quarter 2002. This relationship between Miltope and Harris Corporation is intended to support the production and delivery of new and upgraded TAMMAC DMC systems in any tactical environment where extremely reliable mass storage capability is required.

The IBMM will be a customized version of the Miltope Model Mini-Disk (MD4000) series of environmentally sealed and protected hard disk drives. This version of the MD-4000 system is being designed to be 100% forward and backward compatible with the existing versions of the current TAMMAC DMC IBMM. Miltope's unique design capabilities pertaining to sealed, rotating storage media enables the MD-4000 to function under the severe shock, acceleration, and thermal environmental requirements of the Super Hornet aircraft. The MD-4000/IBMM product is a new addition to the family of Miltope environmentally sealed disk products used in Military and Commercial Avionics Computers, Servers, Workstations, and Mass Storage Systems. ...Miltope profile
