Space & High Altitude

Ampex can tailor its products for radiation tolerance and single event upsets (hardening and recovery). Ampex storage systems have been proven for high altitude long endurance platforms and low Earth orbits to include service on the International Space Station.

Ampex has created a radiation tolerant version of the TS-540, the TS-540RT. The specially designed TS540RT still maintains a small size at just 237 cubic inches. The 540RT is perfect for high altitude and low earth orbit systems. The Dream Chaser® Spaceplane uses the 540RT for video processing as part of cargo missions to the International Space Station.
