API unveils new portable communications suite
API Technologies has announced that it has developed a new secure, portable communications suite called the SST Lightweight Liaison Kit. API made the announcement in a company statement on 9 January 2012.
According to the company, the Lightweight Liaison Kit weighs just 24lbs (11kg), and is a discreet, lightweight, rugged sealed case-based suite. It is completely customisable and designed to incorporate the customer’s choice of cryptography, in addition to the secure laptop, satellite terminal, scanner, power, and communications interfaces.
Designed to be ‘easily carried as an inconspicuous, ultra-portable personal computing and communication solution’, a key component of the Lightweight Liaison Kit is the rugged TEMPEST Level A laptop, which weighs 6lbs (2.8kg), which is around half the weight of a normal TEMPEST laptop.
