The Navy Needs 2 Tons of Storage Devices Burned to Ash

What do you do when you need to destroy massive of classified information stored on digital devices? If you are the U.S. Navy, you issue a solicitation for incineration services able to reduce 4,000 pounds of IT equipment “to ash.” The devices were housed by projects working on “land-based weapons system testing, directing energy weapons testing…and research rocket launch support,” according to its website. Due to the sensitivity of the soon-to-be-destroyed data, only federal employees are permitted to transport the devices, and the incineration will be overseen by project employees.
