Ampex Data Systems (Ampex), a Delta Information Systems Company, recently received a Full Rate Production Lot 7 (FRP-7) contract from Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation. In addition to multiple TuffServ®282 (TS282) Rugged Network File Servers (NFS), Ampex will be delivering supporting storage media for use in the United States Navy's E-2D Hawkeye airborne surveillance aircraft. Ampex will supply multiple shipset systems over a five-year period.

The U.S. Navy's E2-D Hawkeye is an airborne early warning and command and control aircraft system that provides expanded battlespace awareness for carrier strike groups. Its two-generation leap in radar technology allows the E-2D to work with ship-, air- and land-based combat systems to track and defeat air, ship and cruise missiles at extended range. Furthermore, the E2-D can also be used as a humanitarian assistance and disaster relief aircraft for civilian emergency coordination.

Generally regarded as the fastest ruggedized Network File Servers on the market, Ampex's TuffServ Series is engineered to perform in extreme airborne, ground, and space environments. Built for rugged environments with MIL-STD power and connectors, the TS282 meets the real-world needs of operators with features such as built-in power holdup, a front panel display to help identify and resolve anomalies, two media types to allow for different data sources, and service features to facilitate maintenance. Additional features include more than 200 MB/s sustained read or write throughput, standard dual gigabit Ethernet interfaces, and 6-second full load power holdup.
