While it doesn't look like it'll hold up to quite the same "nuclear stresses" as the apparently unrelated Iron Drive, the new IronKey: Enterprise Special Edition flash drive looks like it should at least keep your data safer than the average USB stick. Helping it in that regard is the drive's "military-grade" hardware encryption, which makes use of AES cryptography and authentication and requires no other hardware or software. As if that's not enough, the IronKey also boasts some security measures that'll trigger a self-destruct sequence if someone tries to tamper with the drive, which we assume will only destroy the data, not the drive itself (though we can hope). Otherwise, the drive supposedly exceeds military waterproof standards, and each one boasts a unique serial number to let higher-ups keep tabs on each drive. Of course, all that comes at a bit of a premium price, with the drive running $80, $110, and $150 for 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB versions, respectively.
