The US Air Force is looking to address challenges of secure communications with its Mini Crypto program, Defense Systems reports.

 

The service is seeking cryptographic devices that meet National Security Agency requirements while also falling within low size, weight and power, or SWaP, parameters. The Air Force has issued a request for proposals for the Mini Crypto program. 

 

At an industry day for the program last fall, the Air Force said it was looking for up to 10,000 devices at a cost of about $1,000 each.
