Compromised Military Radios

[index] [10,700 page views]

The SINCGAR (Single Channel Ground Airborne Radio) has been the mainstay communication platform for American combat forces since the mid-80s. Featuring NSA approved Type-1 encryption and frequency hopping, the radio is regarded for being nearly impervious to jamming and resistant to eavesdroppers. However, recent reports indicate that specialized Hezbollah teams were in fact listening in on Israeli communications using technology provided by Iran for tapping into the SINCGAR based communications between Israeli forces.

Is the opportunity for joint operations worth offering our allies access to America's military hardware? Could the primary means of communication really be cracked?
