Is the CSfC Program Growing?
The Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program established by the National Security Agency in 2014 has been growing since its inception
Planning to Export Data-at-Rest Storage with Encryption?
In applications where data flows need to take place in nanoseconds, the delay between when an instruction is received and when it executes, known as latency, is very important.
Keeping Up To Date With CSfC Capability Packages
Since its introduction in 2014, the National Security Agency Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program has proven very effective in lowering the cost and speeding the accessibility of encryption for critical data-at-rest (DAR).
Radiation Tolerance Meets Commercial Space
The wave of commercially developed communications and remote-sensing satellites seeks to balance costs, capability, size, weight, and power consumption in the latest new space designs.
The Case for Using Commercial Tools to Allow Classified Telework
Programs like the National Security Agency’s Commercial Solutions for Classified could be a path to transmit classified information without specialized hardware.
Contested Space, Small Sats, and the Gamble on COTS in Space
Contested space, where nations compete for military dominance outside Earth’s atmosphere, is driving many military space platforms, but commercial space and small satellites continue to change the way the military suppliers of space electronics approach radiation-hardened component design from testing to deployment.
Changing Landscape for Rugged Data Storage
Awareness is mounting regarding the importance of protecting data-at-rest (DAR) on deployed military platforms.
Designers of Small Rugged Computers for the Battlefield Balance Size, Performance, and Cooling
Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components are being embraced so the technology can be serviced at the base instead of waiting for specialized parts or sending the system back state-side.
PacStar Launches Enterprise Gateway Solutions for Classified Networks
PacStar Enterprise CSfC Solutions (ECS), is a suite of enterprise gateway services designed for classified networks using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products.
Managing Next-Generation Open Standard Vehicle Electronics Architectures
Newer on-vehicle integrated networks will be composed of heterogeneous networks in the form of software and equipment from multiple commercial vendors.
Today’s Spacecraft and Satellite Requirements Giving COTS a Fresh Look
The fast growth of small satellites and their lower life cycle and launch costs has created a sizable market for low-cost electronic components that have radiation-resistant characteristics.
