RESCUE Embedment Experts
Ultra is a proud contractor and integrator of U.S. Army Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Reprogrammable Single Chip Universal Encryptor (RESCUE) program. The Army’s vision is to decrease the variety of cryptographic engines with a re-usable architecture to simplify certification, reduce development cost/timelines and improve operational response.
The RESCUE architecture is a common universal encryptor solution that provides cryptographic services to a wide variety of devices. Led by the US Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) C5ISR Centre, RESCUE was developed for embedment into a wide array of communications devices such as radios, satellites, computers, networks, unmanned systems and munitions.
As RESCUE development team members, Ultra supports the Army's vision of a common cryptographic core and offers a RESCUE-based System-on-Chip, modules and services to military system developers. Ultra RESCUE SoCs were recently selected for use in the U.S. Army's Next Generation Load Device - Medium (NGLD-M) program.
