AnÂ Airbus GroupÂ voice encryption technologyÂ has beenÂ added to the Defense Information Systems Agency‘s list of approved products for deployment on Defense Department-run networks.
Airbus said Thursday itsÂ ECTOCRYP BlackÂ device with R1.2.3 software offers voice communications security optionsÂ not previously seen inÂ legacyÂ Secure Communications Interoperability Protocol systems.
The platformÂ is builtÂ withÂ a common commercial-off-the-shelf hardware architecture that operators can programÂ to accommodate new features and technology standards as well as to make the system interoperableÂ with various network types.
â€œThe critical role secure communications devices play in protecting operational security and classified information cannot be overstated,â€ said Mike Cosentino, president of Airbus’ defense and spaceÂ segment.
ECTOCRYP Black is designed to also facilitateÂ interoperatbility between classified and unclassified networks.
Airbus addedÂ itÂ createdÂ the device toÂ support as much as 92 simulations and individual calls per unit as well as allowÂ red enclave interoperability with time division multiplexing and internet protocol based voice systems.
