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.
