Embeddable Security Systems
Viasat embeddable security modules bring flexible and affordable accredited cryptography to a wide range of government and military applications, such as tactical unmanned systems, handheld communications, weaponized platforms, and high-speed cloud computing.
At the core of Viasat embeddable security is the PSIAM™ crypto architecture. With a programmable design, this architecture has proven to provide intelligent protection that can evolve overtime without requiring costly hardware respins.
Our embeddable modules are fielded in tens of thousands of systems and are NSA and NIST certified to protect Top Secret & Below data and communications. With over 25 different existing configurations and an extensive library of cryptographic functions and waveforms, our modules can be easily tailored to your needs and will help you affordably and quickly field your system.

U.S. DoD Embedment Examples:
- MIDS JTRS Leveraging the PSIAM architecture, we designed a crypto subsystem for the MIDS JTRS Link 16 terminal. This multi-channel, multi-security-level software-defined radio received NSA Type 1 certification and is used by the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force.
- FAB-T Boeing selected us – and PSIAM – to provide security for the FAB-T (Family of Advanced Beyond Line-of-Sight Terminals) radio system, which is designed to enable secure military information exchange between ground, airborne, and space platforms.
- Navy CDLS As a subcontractor to Cubic, we provided the networking, encryption, and antenna for the CDL Navy program. We embedded second party crypto chips into the PSIAM design to provide a cost-effective CDL system for the Navy.
