Advanced voice encryption device ECTOCRYP(R) BLACK enables interoperability among a combination of existing secure and unclassified voice communications systems at geographically disparate locations.
     

ECTOCRYP was chosen over a number of products partly because devices can be upgraded remotely through its software interfaces under the full sovereign control of UAE Armed Forces crypto specialists.

Hervé Guillou, Head of Cassidian Cyber Security, said: “This deal is of strategic importance to Cassidian as UAE become the first members of the ECTROCRYP family beyond NATO. The award of this contract is a testament to the world class pedigree of CASSIDIAN's leading edge technology, and supports our mission in Defending World Security”.

To reinforce the partnership, Khalifa University, Cassidian and Emiraje Systems L.L.C. established the Cyber Operations Centre of Excellence located at Khalifa University in June 2011. Cassidian and Emiraje Systems have committed to providing resources and equipment to Khalifa University to support the establishment and operation of the Centre, which in turn will encourage and support the development of intellectual property in the field of cyber operations at the University.
