Integrated Cryptography for Flight
As a leading supplier of cryptography for avionics systems, General Dynamics Mission Systems brings over 40 years of Type 1 system development experience to customer platforms. Our Avionics Systems range from boxes to boards to chips and include some of the most advanced hardware, software and mechanical designs, integrated to meet the community’s high standards for lightweight, low-power, ruggedized components and security.
General Dynamics provides flexible cryptographic solutions for Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) systems being integrated into the world’s newest, most advanced military aircraft, as well as upgrades to legacy IFF systems in operational aircraft.
The KIV-78 Crypto Applique is the next generation Type 1 NSA-certified COMSEC for IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) that meets the new DoD standards. KIV-78 provides cryptographic and time-of-day services for a Mark XIIA (Mode 4 and Mode 5) IFF Combined Interrogator/Transponder (CIT), individual interrogator, individual transponder or IFF system deployed to identify cooperative, friendly systems.
The Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) Crypto Appliqué provides cryptographic and time-of-day services for a Combined Interrogator/Transponder (CIT) or individual interrogator or transponder Mark XIIA (Mode 4 and Mode 5) IFF system deployed to identify cooperative, friendly systems. The small appliqué form-factor supports easy removal and storage without host impact.
The Secure Interface System (SIS) is the critical security link that protects the mission-critical data going to an aircraft and unlocks the collected data brought back. The SIS uses multiple programmable crypto algorithms, certified Type 1 encryption, and key management to secure data.
