Elma Announces - 8 TB of High-speed Storage and Speedy Core i7 Processing in New Rugged Mission Computer


For Immediate Release - July 21, 2015

FREMONT, Calif., July 21, 2015 – Elma Electronic Inc. now offers the StorSys-3000, an exceptionally high-capacity Network Attached Storage (NAS) mission system that withstands harsh, rugged environments for use in IP-based military and defense applications.

The reliable 3U VPX computer includes dual 10 GbE ports that feature integrated TCP/IP offload engines. This frees up the Core i7 processor enabling critical resources to be directed to mission compute tasks, while obtaining optimal link speeds on each input port. These ports, as well as additional I/O such as a VGA, two USB 2.0, three GPIO and an additional two GbE ports, are utilized via MIL-C-38999 connectors on the front end.

The box’s rugged construction, fast processing and ample storage make it ideal for today’s high-bandwidth, intensive data processing and storage applications in several military and defense environments. These include electronic warfare, radar, thermal, hyperspectral and sonar imaging plus signals intelligence (SIGINT) gathering applications.

A four slot storage array supports over 8 TB of solid state MLC storage with RAID protection and high-speed data access speeds of 1.2 GB/sec. The Intel Gen 3 Core i7 CPU clocks in at 2.5 GHz with unwavering performance to ensure successful data transfer.

Designed for use in extended temperature ranges from -40°C to +75°C, the new system incorporates fanless, conduction cooling and a high CFM front-to-back air flow for added heat dissipation. An IP65 rating and high ingress protection ensures internal and external system reliability.

The system can be equipped with other CPU and storage options to suit specific applications. Backplane options range from five to nine slots.

The new mission system draws on Elma’s VPX backplane design capabilities, expertise in integration and electronics packaging as well as its well-rounded partner ecosystem. These attributes provide users with a single source for complete system design, integration and manufacturing services.

Technical Specifications:

  • 8 TB of SSD with PCI Gen2x8 access speed of 1.2 GB/s
  • 2.5 GHz Gen 3 Intel Core i7 with 8 GB ECC-protected DDR3-1600 DRAM
  • Dual 10 GbE ports with integrated TCP/IP offload engines
  • 3U VPX mission computer for harsh defense and military applications
  • Rugged construction: IP65; -40°C to +75°C; MIL-STD-810E, -167, -461

Pricing and delivery for the StorSys-3000 is dependent upon configuration.
