Proven Communication Security Management

Since 2005, SNC has manufactured and delivered hundreds of thousands of SKLs in support of the Department of Defense (DOD) and its mission partners. Leveraging a demonstrated high-volume production line, we provide efficient, secure and cost-effective Key Management systems. Long regarded as the gold standard for key loaders, the SKL distributes COMSEC keys and mission data into End Crypto Units (ECU) - supporting well over 150 ECU profiles.

The Future of Key Management - NGLD-M

The Next Generation Load Device-Medium (NGLD-M) will replace the SKL by supporting advanced encryption capability and key distribution methods, which are required to counter threats against DOD and civil agency networks. When certified, the NGLD-M will meet NSA high assurance standards. This device supports the U.S. Army's Program Executive Office Command Control Communication-Tactical objectives, including enabling secure high-speed, high-capacity voice, data and video communications for the U.S. Army, joint, coalition and their mission partners.
