Space Mesh Networking End Crypto Unit (ECU) Prototype Project

SpEC Project No. 21-09

The National Security Agency (NSA) is seeking to prototype a low SWaP and high-throughput End Cryptographic Unit (ECU) for use in mesh space networks. This prototype Aerospace Vehicle Equipment will enable cryptographic networking in proliferated low earth orbit space systems and is expected to meet design standards necessary for inclusion on a demonstration spacecraft.
