TACLANE-C175N CHVP Encryptor

High Assurance Security and Interoperability with Non-CCI Handling – COMING SOON!

The new TACLANE-C175N CHVP Encryptor is bridging the need for High Assurance Type 1 certified security and interoperability with COTS Handling and End User Devices.

The TACLANE-C175N has been submitted for Certification!

A new alternative to traditional Type 1 CCI products and layered CSfC solutions, the C175N CHVP encryptor provides HAIPE-compliant security in a single device with less stringent, non-CCI handling. In addition to the security and handling, the small form factor and mission focused features make the C175N ideal for mobile and high risk environments.
