Collins Aerospace Receives First NSA Certification for SCISR Radio

 In Americas, C4ISR, Air

Collins Aerospace Systems, a unit of Raytheon Technologies Corp., announced that the com­pa­ny is the first to receive NSA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for the RT-2071© Secure CDL ISR (SCISR) com­mu­ni­ca­tions radio fea­tur­ing a more robust radio encryp­tion that trans­mits mis­sion-crit­i­cal data safely and secure­ly.

The Collins Aerospace SCISR radio was the first to meet secu­ri­ty require­ments by the NSA. The NSA cer­ti­fi­ca­tion ensures that the SCISR radio’s advanced con­nec­tiv­i­ty sup­ports the newest gov­ern­ment wave­form and meets the high­est levels of data link encryp­tion. Designed to be inter­op­er­a­ble with legacy and advanced wave­forms, the SCISR radio also sup­ports Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) ini­tia­tives.

The SCISR com­mu­ni­ca­tions radio is one of the most capa­ble soft­ware-defined radio receiv­er-trans­mit­ters which can be con­fig­ured for either ground or air­borne use. The radio fea­tures a low-cost design and a light­weight wide­band data link that can adapt to var­i­ous types of appli­ca­tions. With a stan­dard net­work inter­face and a built-in router, the SCISR radio is enabled to be net-ready, pro­vid­ing a tac­ti­cal advan­tage in the modern bat­tle­space.

“Along with secure and reli­able com­mu­ni­ca­tions, the SCISR’s easy to use appli­ca­tion inter­face frees up time and allows warfight­ers to remain focused on the mis­sion when it mat­ters most,” states Ryan Bunge, vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er, Communications, Navigation, and Guidance, Collins Aerospace.
