Autonomous Vehicles Products

High Performance PROWLER/ RAPTOR Data Logger Products!

Cheetah RAID Storage specializes in creating the most COMPACT and HIGH-PERFORMANCE NVMe Data Loggers for the Autonomous vehicle industry!


Leveraging its extensive experience in delivering rugged and high-performance technology solutions to the military, Cheetah RAID has tailored its offerings for the AV (Automated Vehicle) market. The servers are engineered to endure challenging environmental conditions commonly encountered by vehicles, such as collisions, potholes, and extreme temperatures, which would typically cause non-rugged systems to fail. These high-performance servers are specifically crafted for unmanned and autonomous driving vehicles, available in turnkey solutions or customizable designs, catering to both military and commercial/industrial applications.

Cheetah’s PROWLER High Performance products are specifically designed for the autonomous vehicle (AV) market to capture a density of sensor data at high rates, in extreme environments. Its smaller form factor and footprint are perfectly suited for the trunk of a self-driving car, a military vehicle, or a studio truck. We offer a removable drive canister for quick transport or via 100Gb Network offload.

Cheetah’s PROWLER autonomous servers were specifically designed with autonomous vehicles in mind – but being high-performance Rugged Servers/JBOF, they can be used in many applications that need to capture a lot of data at a high rate of speed, in a rugged environment, including Military applications, Media/Entertainment, and Surveillance.

Our competitors in the AV market today are selling slower, older technology, with a large footprint and calling it state-of-the-art technology.

Cheetah is the only manufacturer in the AV market today offering NVMe storage and a removable drive canister for quick offloading.


Cheetah RAID offers the flexibility to custom build high-performance servers that cater to the specific configuration needs and requirements of their customers. Additionally, all of their products can be branded with the logos of their customers, allowing for original equipment manufacturer (OEM) branding.




“Not only are we building a High Performance servers but delivering Performance numbers like 14GBs to 20GBs  in the smallest footprint and larger capacities from 60TB to 360TB.”




“AV sitting in a garage waiting for data to be offloaded via network is costly and time consuming.”

Install a fresh drive canister into the car and your off collecting data.
