Businesses NCS - SIS URTK ImageFully Integrated Satellite Link Security Solution

General-Purpose, Dual Channel High Speed Embeddable Processor for Simultaneous Authenticated Command Uplink Decryp­tion and Mission/Telemetry Downlink Encryption

Type 1 640 Mbps ASIC features low-power and  is radiation hardened

Features and Benefits

Available for the first time in a space crypto solution.

  • Multiple cryptographic modes and flexible synchronization logic support many mission profiles and CONOPS
  • GCM cryptographic mode supports variable length authenticated commands up to 4k bytes in length
  • Authenticated downlink option is  ideal for tactical applications, such as UHF radios
  • Multiple, independent authentic­ated command channels enable direct payload or satellite tasking from tactical and/or multiple users, independent of each other
  • Highly integrated single chip solution for both command uplink and data downlink security reduces footprint
  • Unclassified design releasable for high risk-of-loss environments and coalition partners

Additional Advantages

  • Protects data traffic up through TS/SCI
  • Interoperable with KIV-7M Enhanced Suite B GOE
  • Radiation hardened 1 MRad (Si), latch-up immune, QML-V
  • Unclassified when not keyed
  • Over-the-Air Rekey (OTAR) capability to extend mission service life and allow dynamic crypto net management
  • Radiation hardened to support all orbits
  • On-chip synchronization detection reduces need for external circuitry
