Low-weight subsystems, like that provided by Curtiss-Wright, help extend the mission endurance of UUVs.

Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division has been selected by a US system integrator to supply a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)-based Data Transport System 1 (DTS1) Network Attached Storage (NAS) device for a small UUV.

The contract will see the company supply the customer with DTS1 data storage and removable memory cartridge technology.

DTS1 offers two AES 256-bit encryption layers in a single device, making top-secret data protection more cost-effective. The DTS1 NAS device provides up to 8TB of solid-state storage.

The company’s removable memory cartridge is designed for rugged, deployed use cases.

Curtiss-Wright said DST1 was ideal for use in size, weight and power-constrained platforms required to operate in military settings.

The contract will run through 2030 and is worth an estimated $10 million.
