Airborne ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) is a critical part of modern military operations. SATCOM is a key tool for accomplishing ISR missions, but integrating encryption technologies with satellite network systems can be challenging. Encryption is of course complex and requires specialized knowledge of both the particular encryption device and how the satellite network will interact with is. This is why Ministry of Defense (MoD) and other operators rely on Eclipse Secure VPN (Virtual Private Network) / IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) experience and solutions.
Experience demonstrates that transmissions which include encrypted data can be detected and targeted. Maintaining transmission security is critical to mission success. The solution? An IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) hardened, secure VPN. This technology creates a tunnel through which the encrypted data is transmitted, masking the encryption and ensuring vital intelligence is securely transmitted between the ISR aircraft and Command.
