SHIPS: Cross-platform removable NVMe storage

The SHIPS architecture defines the standards for removable NVMe solutions used for physical data security and transport. The heart of the SHIPS architecture is the DIGISTOR storage module, a cross-platform removable NVMe device that can be deployed in the command and control center, office environments, or even in extreme environments such as the tactical edge.

Mission Ready

From command to tactical edge

Whether the SHIPS devices are ours or developed by authorized OEMs and integrators, SHIPS-certified storage modules can be incorporated into everything from workstations and desktops, to vehicles, aircraft, drones, and tactical systems. No longer do OEMs and integrators need to restrict themselves to legacy drive bay standards for removable NVMe storage.


Design for Tomorrow

Our SHIPS ingestion devices and DIGISTOR storage modules are designed for PCIe gen 4 speeds, making them future proof for long-running programs. Detailed specifications are available to OEMs and system integrators to develop their own cross-platform, interchangeable removable NVMe solutions.
