National Security Agency Awards Sanmina-SCI Top Secret Classification For Integrated Secure Wireless Intercommunications (ISWICS)

Stocks in this article: SANM

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sanmina-SCI Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), a leading manufacturing and engineering company making some of the world's most complex and innovative optical, electronic and mechanical products, today announced that its Defense and Aerospace Division has received NSA Type 1 certification from the National Security Agency for the Integrated Secure Wireless Intercommunications System (ISWICS). The certificate endorses ISWICS as capable of protecting classified and sensitive voice and data to the Top Secret level.


ISWICS is a secure, wireless, handheld intercommunications system that allows aircrews, ground tactical and seaborne personnel the freedom to move easily within, or in close proximity to, their aircraft, vehicle or vessel, while maintaining encrypted secure communications without the restriction of a physical wire tether.

"Achieving this high-level certification is a critical milestone for our division and the Huntsville, Alabama facility where the ISWICS is designed and manufactured, and we're proud to be able to provide this important capability to ensure the success of current and future missions conducted by the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marine Corps," said Mike Underwood, President of Sanmina-SCI's Defense and Aerospace Systems Division. The certification allows ISWICS to be used within the United States Government and for military applications requiring the highest levels of information security. NSA Type 1 certification is awarded to products that pass a rigorous process of development, testing and verification to ensure compliance with the National Security Agency's stringent standards in safeguarding classified information.

ISWICS provides a Full Duplex, TEMPEST qualified, secure communications link with robust functionality that allows for access to all radios, as well as peer-to-peer intercommunications within any environment. Secure wireless communications allow today's war fighters complete freedom of movement, while increasing both safety and improved battlefield situational awareness. Included in the ISWICS certification is the Secure Wireless Transceiver (SWT) KOV-54, and the Secure Wireless Base Station (SWBS) KOV-53.
