Ampex Data Systems Announces Long Term Agreement with Collins Aerospace

Ampex Data Systems (Ampex), a Delta Information Systems Company, has signed a long term agreement (LTA) with Collins Aerospace to deliver TuffServ solid state recorders (SSRs), memory storage systems, and mission data loaders for use in Collins Aerospace’s MS-110 airborne reconnaissance systems.

The TuffServ SSRs will leverage use of the Ampex Common Compute Environment (ACCE), which includes network attached storage (NAS) software and graphical user interfaces (GUIs) common to all TuffServ airborne NAS products. Ampex will provide support from its headquarters in Hayward, Cal.

The company says their TuffServ series is designed to perform in extreme airborne, ground, and space environments and offers the fast, ruggedized Network File Servers. Additionally, the TuffServ series supports the full spectrum of commercial and military operations to include Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Flight Test, provides removable storage capacities up to 100TB, and a range of interfaces and software capabilities.

“This agreement is a fundamental, ongoing part of Ampex’s strategic approach to working with leading edge mission system providers in the high data rate market,” stated Jim Orahood, vice president and general manager of Ampex Data Systems. “We are exceptionally proud to have been selected by Collins Aerospace and look forward to continued success in supporting this multi-year effort.”
