* ECTOCRYP® Steel is the next step for platform wide management of secure assets, improving mission flexibility and responsiveness
* Time, labour and through life cost savings available from wider application of Eurofighter technology
* ECTOCRYP® Steel is the next step for platform wide management of secure assets, improving mission flexibility and responsiveness
* Time, labour and through life cost savings available from wider application of Eurofighter technology



Launch of ECTOCRYP® Steel, a single point fill cryptographic solution developed by EADS Defence & Security (DS) and was selected for the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft.

The benefits of single point fill technology are now available to the wider cryptographic market through ECTOCRYP® Steel. These include

* Faster secure mission preparation. ECTOCRYP® Steel eliminates the time-consuming need for crypto equipment aboard an airborne platform to be manually re-keyed before every mission. This change results in significant reduction in mission preparation time.



* Reduced keying errors. ECTOCRYP® Steel improves mission responsiveness, reduces key filling errors and brings the opportunity to realise exceptional through-life cost savings



* Increased flexibility for out of area operations. ECTOCRYP® Steel brings the DS single point fill technology to modern military platforms to meet the demands for a highly responsive, secure and flexible key management solution. By pre-loading and storing multiple mission scenarios, ECTOCRYP® Steel improves flexibility for out-of-area operations.



* ECTOCRYP® Steel provides secure onboard management and storage for current and future key material associated with multiple cryptographic devices without the need for aircraft power



* Exceptional through-life cost savings. ECTOCRYP® Steel brings the opportunity to realise significant through-life cost savings due to the reduction in labour overheads.



Steve Howarth, Head of Sales in DS in the UK for the Ectocryp Portfolio stated

“It is essential that key material remains secure at all times and this typically requires erasure when platforms are “stood down” between missions with subsequent lengthy refilling of key material at the beginning of the next mission. ECTOCRYP® Steel considerably reduces the inherent delay this process incurs at a critical, high pressure time by allowing key data to be pre-loaded and stored”.

ECTOCRYP® Steel technology has been developed over more than seven years and has been selected for use in the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft. The rigorous testing process alone has taken over 4 years to ensure that the device is robust and reliable in the most extreme battlespace conditions.

ECTOCRYP® Steel has primarily been designed to meet the requirements of the Eurofighter Typhoon Programme, the technology is applicable across many Maritime and Land based platforms and systems which use multi cryptographic equipments.
