Mobile Encryptor Earns NSA’s TS/SCI Certification

Nov. 22, 2019
Developed per SWaP+C guidelines, this compact network encryptor recently received TS/SCI certification from the NSA for use in applications requiring total assurance of secure data communications.

The National Security Agency (NSA) has certified the TACLANE-Nano (KG-175N) network encryptor developed by General Dynamics Mission Systems for communications security levels as high as top secret/sensitive compartmented information (TS/SCI). The encryptor can protect the most critical data communications through government networks and national security systems worldwide at any time.

The TACLANE-Nano (KG-175N) network encryptor (see figure) was developed according to military reduced size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C) initiatives and can operate at aggregate speeds exceeding 100 Mb/s. Despite the small size, it can handle the demands of a mobile communications environment. It’s flexible and portable enough for rapid tactical forward deployment for manned and unmanned intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, as well as covert and special operations.

“General Dynamics is committed to advancing our TACLANE portfolio to address our customers’ unique mission needs from enterprise to edge,” said Brian Morrison, vice president and manager of the Cyber Systems line of business for General Dynamics Mission Systems. “This certification makes TACLANE Type 1 encryption available in a ruggedized low SWaP form factor to bring our proven data security to the tactical edge of the battlefield.”
