General Dynamics Mission Systems has demonstrated the latest the TACLANE-Nano (KG-175N) small form-factor mobile encryptor to ensure secure communication.

TACLANE-Nano is the newest addition to the company’s widely deployed family of TACLANE Type 1 encryptors.

During the demonstration, the new encryptor transmitted live traffic, including a real-time streaming video with other TACLANE HAIPE encryptors.

Fitted with the latest in crypto modernisation technology, TACLANE-Nano has been designed to protect information classified up to top secret  / sensitive compartmented information.

General Dynamics Mission Systems cyber and electronic warfare systems vice-president and general manager Michael Tweed-Kent said: “We know our customers depend on TACLANE, and with this latest introduction, we continue to instill confidence in their digital world.

“Its 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.”

“In the fourth quarter of this year, General Dynamics intends to submit the TACLANE-Nano system to the National Security Agency for certification.”

Suitable for mobile communications, the new system has been ruggedised to effectively operate in adverse environments, according to the company.

The encryptor can be best used for integration into flyaway kits and deployable systems, dismounted tactical forward deployment, as well as unmanned / manned intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance operations.

TACLANE-Nano is size, weight, power and cost optimised, with unmatched performance for a small form-factor inline network encryptor.

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