Just by their very nature SSDs are physically tough, with no moving parts like you find in platter based disks, so they are able to withstand much great acceleration forces ... or deceleration depending on how you look at it.  TeleCommunication Systems is not a name you are likely to recognize when it comes to SSDs so you should take note of the Galatea Ultra Rugged SSD.  The flash is just as tough, with 20,000 terabytes of write guaranteed along with 10 year data retention also guaranteed.  Performance is also guaranteed thanks to the SandForce SF-1565 controller and Micron 25nm SLC flash.  If there is an SSD likely to make it into orbit soon, this will probably be the one to do it.  Check it out at SSD Review.
