Windtalker Encryption Device (WED)

Secure Wireless Intercom For Helicopters

General Dynamics Mission Systems’ encryption module secures wireless intercom systems used onboard U.S. Army and U.S. Navy helicopters. The module is capable of protecting secure conversations between air and ground crew members. General Dynamics has partnered with Telephonics Corporation, the prime contractor for the U.S. Army’s new Aircraft Wireless Intercom System (AWIS), and began production of the WED modules in 2009. The WED module is NSA certified to protect information classified up to Secret.
