Optical Storage Solutions for In-Flight Entertainment from
Mountain Secure Systems

Everett IFE SolutionMountain Secure Systems (MSS) has been providing rugged optical storage solutions for over 25 years. We leverage our packaging expertise to protect optical devices from thermal, vibration, shock, EMI and humidity extremes. Blu-ray, our latest in-flight entertainment (IFE) offering, comes with multiple interfaces, including Ethernet and SATA. Depending on your application, MSS can provide standard COTS products or develop a custom solution to meet your specific requirements.

Additionally, MSS offers a network-attached Flyable Data Loader (FDL), which includes all the Windows-based software and qualification to full DO-160. The design incorporates a Blu-ray drive, SBC, Power Supply and ECS (Environmental Control System). The purpose of the unit is to allow automatic data off-load, from either a USB or Blu-ray disc in the aircraft cabin to a server located in the electronics bay.

Furthermore, our expertise in data handling, ruggedization and development to customer specification has taken us into many different avenues of subsystem integration and box-level electronic products. We have extensive experience integrating storage components with single board computers, adaptors, power supplies, cooling and heating systems, converters, backplanes, mil spec connectors, and custom software in many different custom and standard form factors.
