It's not often that we get the pleasure of speaking about Trident Space & Defense, but said outfit has just unveiled something that has little to do with the galaxy and much to do with your current / future laptop. You see, the company is gearing up to introduce its Triton FSE (Fast / Secure Erase) SSD at the Armed Forced Communications Electronics Association West 2009 conference, and it's designed to be a "direct drop-in replacement for conventional rotating hard disks that often fail in harsh environments with extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, dust, and moisture." Housed in a machined aluminum alloy case, the drive features industrial-grade SLC NAND Flash and will be available in sizes up to 128GB. Aside from brushing off bumps and bruises, it can also "purge your data and sanitize your information with agency defined algorithms allowing for complete media de-classification." If you're looking for Maxwell Smart's approval, we believe you've got it.
