M1HC 2.5" SATA solid state drives (SSDs) are among the most data-protected and secure SSDs available and are a comprehensive memory solution for defense applications. Their ruggedized design is built to withstand 1000g, 0.5 ms of operating shock and has been developed to operate at over 30,000m of altitude, or 100,000 ft. Engineers designing for high-capacity, highly secure, military applications will want to consider M1HCs for their projects. A robust set of diagnostic tools is provided through SSD-specific S.M.A.R.T attributes which can be used to monitor the health of the drive.
M1HC SSDs include some of the most complete security features available. They automatically protect all user data written with an AES 256-bit encryption and that is FIPS 197 certified. They implement military security procedures such as NSA 9-12, AR 380-19, NAVSO P-5239-26, and AFFSI-5020 for ground forces, naval and air protection needs. Also included are TCG/Opal 2.0 Compliance, a Sanitize Device feature set, and the Security feature set per the ATA-8 specification, including deleting the encryption key in less than 10 milliseconds.
When the SSD has too many bad blocks, the M1HC goes into Write Termination mode, whereby no more data can be written.
