Globalstar, the world's most popular handheld satellite phone service, and Rainbow Mykotronx, a leading manufacturer of high-grade encryption and decryption equipment, today announced that Type-1 data encryption - the U.S. government's highest level of security for data transmission - is now available over Globalstar phones using Mykotronx encryption equipment.
The Rainbow Mykotronx KIV-7HSB data encryption device, which has a proven record in providing top level data security across a wide range of applications and installations, has been successfully tested and integrated by Rainbow Mykotronx with the Globalstar Qualcomm GSP-1600 satellite phone.
The integration offers Globalstar users the same high assurance security protection of the U.S. National Security Agency's (NSA) strongest level of encryption.
The Rainbow Mykotronx KIV-7HSB's compact configuration is ideal for desktop, embedded, or rack installations, yet it also offers a broad variety of features, including removable Crypto Ignition Key protection of internally stored keys, user-friendly menu-based interfaces, and compatibility with both DS-101 and DS-102 electronic keying devices.
The Globalstar Qualcomm GSP-1600 is one of the smallest and most versatile satellite phones available today, allowing users to stay in touch from virtually anywhere with a clear, reliable CDMA-quality signal. It is also available with a growing number of add-on accessories for use in aviation, maritime and other applications in demanding physical environments.
Rainbow Mykotronx, Inc. is pioneer in technology for secure electronic communication, operating at the forefront of Communications and Information Security (COMSEC and INFOSEC) technology.
