Military communications can be targeted by enemy forces operations in an attempt to learn about intentions and gain superiority at the battlefield this way. A new device will protect information classified up to top secret/ sensitive compartmented (derived from sensitive intelligence sources, methods, or analytical processes) information. Extremely compact and mobile, the new TACLANE-Nano provides end-to-end HAIPE encryption in the smallest, lightest and lowest power configuration. HAIPE (High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor) is a Type 1 encryption device that complies with the US National Security Agency’s Interoperability Specification.

General Dynamics Mission Systems has recently demonstrated the TACLANE-Nano small form-factor mobile encryptor designed to ensure secure communication, the newest addition to the company’s family of TACLANE Type 1 encryptors.

According to the company, the device’s size, features and performance mean “the TACLANE-Nano can be deployed in a range of environments, spanning from an unmanned system, to a warfighter on the frontline, ensuring the secure encryption of highly classified communications and information sharing that is so critical to the mission.”

Suitable for mobile communications, the new system has been ruggedised to effectively operate in adverse environments, reports army-technology.com. It can withstand the rigors of any mobile environment including tactical, mobile applications such as telework, dismounted deployments, and integration into mobile communications kits, according to the company website.

The technology supports the bandwidth required to process voice, video and data applications, including real-time video and data analytics.

The system will be submitted to the US National Security Agency for certification in the fourth quarter of this year.
