New voice encryption device passes field tests

A new high-capacity, voice encryption device built by EADS North America with four T1 interfaces that allow for as many as 92 simultaneous individual calls per unit and the ability to store hundreds of cipher keys has passed field tests at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., company officials said Aug. 27.

The Ectocryp Black high-capacity voice encryption device, which has been certified by the National Security Agency, passed tests conducted in the field by the Joint Interoperability Test Command indicating that it can operate with military and government classified and unclassified networks and with existing equipment, the officials said.

The device enables users on unclassified networks equipped with secure communications IP-compliant phones to communicate with secured enclaves and conduct enterprise services, such as secure teleconferencing with multiple locations, the officials said.
