01 Dec 04. Boeing’s newest version of the Advanced Display Core Processor (ADCP) flew for the first time recently on a U.S. Air Force F-15E Strike Eagle at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., enhancing the jet’s capability.
Developed using commercial data technologies, ADCP significantly increases the processing capability for the two-person F-15E fighter crew enabling the aircraft’s computer system to process target data faster, display better information to the crew, and control more advanced weaponry. Using less power than its predecessor at half the cost and weight, ADCP provides enhanced memory with commercial processors and is a significant upgrade to an older central computer and multi-purpose display processor.

30 Nov 04. Thales UK announced a broadband remote access solution certified to Enhanced Grade under the CESG Assisted Products Scheme (CAPS) for use by the UK Government. CESG is the information assurance arm of GCHQ that is responsible for evaluating and approving security products for use by the Government. The solution combines the proven SafeDial+ encryptor PC card with the new SafeDial+ IP Adapter, and may be used for Protectively Marked information up to CONFIDENTIAL. SafeDial+ uses a proprietary Enhanced Grade UK Government algorithm to secure the privacy and integrity of any communications sent to and from a computer over a wide range of communications media. Available for laptops and with an adaptor for desktop machines, SafeDial+ is the only product of its kind approved for use by the Government and is used by thousands of remote workers across central Government departments and the MoD. Thales is also introducing the SafePort+ PortServer as an IP concentrator for the central site. In conjunction with the SafePort+ Rack, this allows the central site solution to cater for in-coming connections over both dial-up and IP networks.
