A shock-resistant memory device comprises a housing and a memory module. The memory module is disposed within the housing and surrounded by potting material to protect the memory module from damage during a shock event. The housing can include a port that accommodates a data connection between the memory module and a sensor from which data is desirably received by the memory module. During a shock event the connection between the memory module and the sensor may be severed, but data stored in the memory module can be retained in the memory module which is protected by the housing. To facilitate retrieval of the memory device subsequent to a shock event, a balloon can be affixed to the housing. The balloon can be configured to inflate subsequent to the shock event so that the shock-resistant memory device does not sink in water and to make the memory device more visible for recovery.
