ASHBURN, Virginia. Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions has announced that its Data Transport System 1 (DTS1)-based Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) Network Attached Storage (NAS) has been chosen by a US systems integrator leading for use on a small-class unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) deployment.

Under the terms of the more than $10 million contract, Curtiss-Wright will provide the user with its DTS1 data storage and removable memory cartridge (RMC) technologies.

According to the pricing announcement, the rugged DTS1 features two layers of NSA-approved Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) encryption in a single device to protect critical data. Chris Wiltsey, senior vice president and general manager of Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions, says the contract is the division’s first for an NSA-approved data encryption solution on a small UUV.

The contract, which Curtiss-Wright said began earlier in 2022, is expected to last until 2030.
