SOSA-Aligned 6U OpenVPX Storage – 32 TB/Slot

Annapolis offers the highest density OpenVPX storage solutions on the market, with up to 32.0 TB of capacity in a single 1” 6U slot, and up to 10 GB/sec read/write bandwidth.

The WS6SN0 is a hot swappable board (10,000 insertion cycles), is 100GbE capable, and is developed in alignment with SOSA™.

Annapolis Storage Solutions are optimised for SIGINT, ELINT, EW, or other high-bandwidth storage applications.


The SOSA-aligned 6U WILDSTAR Data Storage Solution from Annapolis features up to 32 TB storage depth and up to 10 GB/sec bandwidth, plus additional depth and bandwidth capacity using multiple Cards.

One Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC ZU11 Motherboard Controller allows stand-alone operation, and supports multiple levels of hardware and software security.

The board has a rugged design and is available in industrial temperature grades. Options for air, conduction, air-flow-through, and liquid-cooled environments are also available.

High-bandwidth backplane connectivity is enabled by MULTIGIG RT3 interconnects, which deliver 100Gb per Fat Pipe.

The 6SN0 is part of Annapolis’ growing WILD100 EcoSystem™, an interoperable portfolio of rugged high-performance 100Gb VPX COTS boards and systems.
