London - Royal Air Force A400Ms will be equipped with an important security system from Airbus Defence & Space, under a new contract with the UK Ministry of Defence.
Worth £3.3 million ($5 million) for an initial 15-month activity spanning development to delivery, the deal will lead to the provision of a local crypto key management system. This technology “eliminates the need for crypto equipment aboard an airborne platform to be individually re-keyed before every mission,” says Airbus, which adds that the enhancement will “prevent data compromise that could threaten the safety and security of an aircraft’s mission.”
