How rugged is "rugged"? The answer to that question should have a clear and consistent answer that gives system integrators the confidence and surety that a specific module from a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) supplier will perform and survive in the conditions their application requires. All too often though, claims made by COTS vendors that their module will meet a certain range of durability (temperature, shock, and vibration) are not based on a common, industry standard that enables the customer to make meaningful comparisons between different boards from different vendors.
DALLAS. Officials at Phoenix International Systems introduced the Phalanx II rugged Network Attached Storage (NAS) data storage system, at this year's Xponential, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International’s (AUVSI) conference .
It's worth noting that UUVs aren't necessarily simply "sea drones," because they are not remotely piloted in most cases.
