FreeWave Technologies Encryption Technology for its Spartan Series is NIST Certified

FreeWave Technologies encryption technology for the Spartan Series of wireless radios used in government and defense markets is now certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The company manufactures spread spectrum and licensed radios for critical data transmission.

The Spartan Series encryption technology is a FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validated solution. It has successfully passed extensive testing procedures stipulated by the NIST. The certification process further reiterates that the encryption technology can optimize the security for mission critical applications.

Phil Linker, government and defense product manager at FreeWave Technologies, said, “At FreeWave, we pursue 100 percent customer satisfaction and the NIST certification of the cryptography within our Spartan Series further proves that we are focused on meeting the needs of our government and defense customers and OEM partners.”

“By ensuring the utmost security of our technology offerings, we continue to provide reliable solutions that are trusted to perform mission critical applications, often when human lives are at stake,” Linker added.

Officials explained that the Spartan Series is fully capable of delivering a secure communications link that suits government and defense applications. It serves the needs of soldier training exercises, command and control of UAVs and critical asset tracking.

Also the Spartan solution allows the secure transmission of encrypted data on a real-time basis. The solution is compact and lightweight and hence suitable in applications where there is space constraint.

The Spartan solution can be upgraded to NSA Secret and Below (SaB). The Spartan Series features up to 32 unique crypto keys; remote capability to zeroize an individual key or all keys; advanced key handling architecture and NSA “Suite B” algorithms besides offering the ability to upgrade to a DS-101 key loading interface.

Recently, FreeWave Technologies announced its LRS415 Series of narrowband, M2M wireless licensed radios. The new line of radios transmits on frequency bands between 406.1 MHz and 430 MHz. They offer dependable, robust RF links for telemetry and SCADA networks internationally. The LRS415 covers the 406.1 to 430 MHz bands as the newest radio to FreeWave’s LRS radio line.
