Abstract
End Cryptographic Units (ECUs) and associated security module, are essential for protecting satellite communications that include payload data, control commands, status, and bent-pipe operations. Legacy systems such as require cryptographic needs for Communication security (COMSEC) and Transmission security (TRANSEC). Further increasing the ECUs requirements are terminals typically need multiple channels ranging from receive only to full-duplex. Modernization and programmability provide a mechanism to support these algorithms as well as algorithms such as the Suite B family of algorithms. Equally important is modernization of the key management infrastructure from the legacy to KMI as it goes through its rollout. Aeronix understands innovative concepts and they will be employed to support the demanding Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) figures needed for legacy and future satellite communication systems. An ASM with standardized interfaces will enable integrators to easily incorporate the ASM into their satellite communication system. This SBIR Phase II effort will focus on the modernization of satellite communication security for the NAVY and the feasibility of the proposed compact Type 1 encryption hardware. Aeronix brings over 25 years of experience in the areas of implementation, embedment, and system design in Type 1 security and satellite communications.
