We provide a low risk, COTS (Commercial off the shelf) based approach to meeting secure communications link components. Our approach reuses systems and software architecture by managing the overall system SWaP of existing board designs and then modifying them to support light weight platforms. We provide rapid end to end integration through low rate initial production runs of customized prototypes and modifying our baseline software to meet the unique requirements of our end customers. Our deliverables include platforms that weigh less than 500 grams and are capable of offering options that minimize development costs and represent significant risk reduction to current programs.
