Sectra receives order for aviation cryptosystem

The Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV) has ordered a cryptosystem that will be used in the Gripen aircraft system. The system will be delivered by the Swedish company Sectra and the order value amounts to SEK 10 million.

The cryptosystem meets the absolute strictest security requirements and is tailor-made for use in aircraft. This system facilitates faster and more cost-efficient development and further enhancement of the Gripen operations.

“Sectra has unique competence in encryption, as a result of which we can rapidly customize a cryptosystem for aircraft from our broad cryptographic portfolio,” says Jan-Olof Brüer, President of Sectra Communications. “The order strengthens our position as the leading crypto supplier to the Swedish Defense Forces,” Jan-Olof Brüer adds.

The cryptosystem in the Gripen system is expected to be in the air during 2007.
