The Curtiss-Wright Corporation (CW) Releases New Data Protection System

New aircraft equipment just released by Curtiss-Wright to provide data encryption and protection.

Curtiss-Wright (CW) has developed a new network attached storage (NAS) system that incorporates Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information encryption to protect critical data-at-rest (DAR) on unmanned deployed platforms.

Curtiss-Wright says:

“As the number of sensors on unmanned intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance platforms continues to proliferate, the challenge of protecting the critical data collected and stored on those platforms has grown in significance.”

By using a DAR Type-1 encryptor Curtiss-Wright’s Unattended Network Storage (UNS) system provides an off-the-shelf solution to prevent unauthorised access to classified information in the event that an unmanned system is lost or stolen, the company said.

The DAR Type-1 encryptor uses Pre-Placed Keys, which enables the same key to be loaded onto multiple encryptors so that data can be encrypted onto an RSM in one location for decrypting later at another location.

This new equipment just released Curtiss-Wright has had a good impact on it’s stock price as it begins to recover from recent losses in value.
