U.S. Department of Defense embedment projects

MIDS JTRS

We designed a crypto subsystem with our PSIAM architecture for the Multifunctional Information Distribution System Joint Tactical Radio System (MIDS JTRS) Link 16 terminal — a multi-channel, multi-security-level software-defined radio with NSA Type 1 certification that is used by the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force.

FAB-T

Boeing selected us and our PSIAM architecture to provide security for the Family of Advanced Beyond Line-of-Sight Terminals (FAB-T) radio system, which is designed to enable secure exchange of military information between ground, airborne, and space platforms.

Navy CDLS

As a subcontractor for Cubic, we provided cost-effective networking, encryption, and antennas for the Common Data Link Systems (CDLS) Navy program by embedding second-party crypto chips into our PSIAM architecture.
