Encryption system for SAAB’s JAS 39 Gripen
Sectra has developed and enhanced a customized telemetry encryption system for the JAS 39 Gripen fighter plane. The JAS 39 Gripen is a lightweight, single-engine multirole combat aircraft manufactured for the Swedish Air Force by Swedish aerospace company SAAB. In 2006 the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) commissioned Sectra to develop a customized telemetry encryption system to be used during test flights of the aircraft. The encryption system for the JAS 39 Gripen is tailor-made for use in the aircraft and meets strict security requirements. Over the years, the system has been enhanced in a close collaboration between SAAB and Sectra.
