Harris Corporation’s small lightweight and embeddable radio has received Type 1 certification from the National Security Agency. The Harris Small Secure Data Link provides embedded encryption capabilities in a single-channel, multiband, multimission radio.
“We are honored to be able to bring this new capability to the warfighter, and excited that SSDL already is being designed into unmanned vehicle Communication Relay Payload Solutions,” said Sheldon Fox, group president of Harris Government Communications Systems.
The SSDL weighs 18 ounces, is less than 25 cubic inches and is the smallest-size weight and power Type 1 VHF/UHF software-defined, embedded radio available today. It’s also the world’s most widely deployed, software-defined tactical radio with more than 150,000 units delivered.
