Built for tough environments, the TuffCORD goes wherever operators need to go, and delivers consistent, reliable performance in challenging conditions. With its compact size, light weight, low power dissipation and mounting options, it can be installed wherever it needs to be.

The TuffCORD has been designed from the ground up to provide cybersecurity capabilities that meet the real-world needs of operators. By leveraging world-class solutions from trusted suppliers, the system is straightforward to incorporate into a complete Operation Security plan.

Gigabit Ethernet has become the default networking technology for onboard data storage applications, and the TuffCORD provides two 1000Base-T interfaces, as well as expansion capability for options for video and other bus types, including MIL-STD-1553B, CAN bus, and even WiFi networking.

To support this range of interfaces, the TuffCORD provides a single high-capacity, high performance removable memory module, with capacities from 240GB to 4000GB (4TB) and higher, as memory technology matures. The memory modules leverage rugged COTS media solutions, further qualified by AMPEX to meet the requirements of challenging programs.
