Users have expressed a growing need for a small form-factor, rugged, one-way data transfer product, that will withstand a wide range of tactical operating conditions, including provision to the individual, dismounted,warfighter. Owl has migrated its proprietary DualDiode technology to such a platform, to deliver a reliable, cost-effective product with adequate bandwidth and speed for tactical, fully portable, deployment.
This instance of the MCDS device has been designed with standard USB interfaces — a Send-only USB device and a Receive-only USB device, physically isolated from each other by an integrated opto-coupler. Send and Receive sides of MCDS are configured to connect only to devices enumerated as valid source and destination. Incorrect setup cannot be made operable. Owl USB-DualDiode technology permits the direct connection to sensitive networks of mobile devices, such as laptops and PDAs.
Ruggedized Mobile Cross-Domain Solution
Owl 002TV is designed to meet a full range of environmental requirements for mobile and deployed systems -- to be tested to MIL-STD-810F for shock, vibration, temperature, sand and dust. It will also be tested to MIL-STD-461E, for conducted and radiated emissions and susceptibility. Owl 002TV may be mounted and deployed in a number of environments. It is designed for in-vehicle use, where operational conditions (including exposure to moisture) dictate robust, resilient design and performance. The product supports USB-based connectivity. USB-connecting devices (in-vehicle processors, environmental sensors, laptops, PDAs, vehicle communication gear, etc.) independently power the Send-only and Receive-only sides of the Owl 002TV one-way transfer. Other types of connectivity (i.e., EIA232 serial, Ethernet) are being evaluated. From low to high, one-way security policy absolutely assures the confidentiality of the high security domain. From high to low, one-way security policy prevents penetration of the high-security domain, assuring that data transfer can only be initiated from the high side. Owl 002TV is fully functional today, with channel capacity of approximately 2Mbps. Power consumption is very low. Data filters and device identification signatures may also be built into the device.
