"When command chain has to work, come hell or high water“.
Unbreakable Affordable Last Resource Communication System
SecureChat is a cybersecure digital communication system developed by field experienced soldiers for national military and civil organisations doing their call of duty in cyber-physical warfare or high-crisis situations
„SecureChat – when command chain has to work, come hell or high water“.
The Global Challenge
Small- and medium-sized countries have limited capabilities for secure communications that are not dependent on vulnerable fixed infrastructure. Truly reliable established military network systems also require satellites and other extremely expensive equipment (e.g. portable power stations) to work in all crisis situations. In practice the communication of troops in small countries – and between co-operating small and large countries – is now based mainly on mobile phones and public networks. This is unacceptable and non-functional during true crisis situations or wartime.
Lt-Gen Frederick ‘Ben’ Hodges, commander of the US Army in Europe warned about serious shortcomings in communications between US Troops and Baltic countries.
The first truly affordable cyber secure system for national military- or civil organization´s basic communication needs. Working communication is a basis for every chain of command both in military as well civil defence. A nationwide independent network is created using affordable civilian components with our special additions that make it military grade secure and impossible to take down.
Military Comms/SATCOM vs SecureChat
Expensive Military Comms systems use mobile mast stations, but because of their size and EMC footprint, also these are easy to locate by adversary. Better - and much more costly - option is to use satellite communication. The SATCOM systems are expensive and only the biggest countries can afford to use SATCOM at all.
SecureChat does not use fixed infrastructure, base stations, routing tables or preconfiguration. Our solution is simple from hardware side, but extremely clever from software. It is a infrastructure-less peer-to-peer system, that allows sending text messages and “sitrep-s” to large geographical distances even in the hottest crisis situations where the civil networks and internet are made unusable.
Military Grade Encryption and Non-traceable
AES256 encryption with optional 1024 bits key depending on the licenses of the export market. Message structure variation and adaptive compression combined with smart error correction allow for very effective small packets that are impossible to decipher without key. Intra-Hardware Man-In-The-Middle attack tolerance (US Patent Granted). In total, high security level suitable for Critical Command Chain messaging and tiny radio footprint - low traceability.
Android and Windows Support
The operating principle of SecureChat system is simple: the sender writes a short text message (up to 100 characters) using his terminal (Android phone or a laptop) with SecureChat software. The software configures the message into an encrypted data stream, which is transferred via SecureChat modem to a lightweight 5-25 Watts radio.
Secure USP and competitive advantage to achieve largest market share. Over 5 years competitive advantage. High entry barriers to competitors.
Military & Civil Use
The system can be used with modern military radios, with older military radios, and even with many civilian walkie-talkies. SecureChat modem can be usually be configured to use the type of radios that are in service and the soldiers are familiar with. Due to that and the user-friendly interface the learning curve for an average user is less than an hour and for most who are familiar with Android phones it is literally in minutes.
When Nothing Else Works...
SecureChat does not replace peace-time communication systems and it does not compete with all the high-tech systems. SecureChat is not designed to send large quantities of data. It is designed with Lowtec principle: It is simple - economic - easy to use - and it gets the short message or sitrep through to all who need it as long as they are in the network. It works in the time of crises of war where peace-time secure communication is hampered by technical problems or enemy disturbance.
