The Viasat KG-250X is a rugged, Type 1 Inline Network Encryptor (INE) certified by the National Security Agency to deliver high-speed High Assurance Internet Protocol Encryptor (HAIPE) IP network encryption to tactical and mobile users for applications such as airborne missions. Viasat intends the KG-250X to provide advanced network security past the HAIPE standard requirements. The Viasat KG-250X fits into a rucksack or three-wide in a 1U rack, enabling trusted communications for high-bandwidth TS/SCI-and-below missions.

Features also include the capability to remotely rekey a network of HAIPE devices from a physically secure location with HAIPE-to-HAIPE over-the-air/net keying. The system is also designed to improve performance over high-latency links with embedded TCP/IP [transmission control protocol/Internet protocol] acceleration. Additionally, users can attach a remote front panel to interface with the Viasat KG-250X, via cable, providing control access even if the stowed crypto is not physically within reach.
