DESCRIPTION/FUNCTION


The WALBURN Family (KG-81, KG-94/194, KG-94A/194A, KG-95-1,2, and R) equipment consists of high-speed bulk encryption devices used primarily for encryption of microwave trunks, high-speed landline circuits, video teleconferencing, and T-1 satellite channels. WALBURN Family devices are certified to encrypt and decrypt up to TOP SECRET. They are UNCLASSIFIED controlled cryptographic items (CCIs) when unkeyed. These devices provide full-duplex/simplex encryption for all classification levels and are cryptographically compatible and interoperable (within their respective data rates).

KG-81: Provides full-duplex encryption of digital trunks. It is rack mounted using the HNF-81-1/2 interconnect housing frame. The KG-81 is used primarily at major communications stations for bulk data and video encryption.

KG-94: Provides emerging low and medium tactical and nontactical digital trunk encryption. It is rack mounted using the HNF-81-1/2 interconnect housing frame and supports the Joint Tactical Communications program in association with Marine Corps AN/TTC-42 and AN/TRC-170 switches.

KG-94A: Is an environmentally repackaged, ruggedized version of the KG-94 that supports the Marine Corps unit level circuit switches (SB-3865) and the Digital Wideband Transmission System(DWTS).

KG-194: Is a less costly version of the KG-94 that incorporates a remote keying capability and implements FIREFLY technology. The KG-194 is used for digital and voice bulk encryption at major communications stations.

KG-194A: Is a less costly ruggedized version of the KG-194. It satisfies the same basic requirements as the KG-94A, incorporates a remote keying capability, and implements FIREFLY technology.

KG-95: Is a general-purpose, high-speed, full-duplex, fixed-plant, key-generating encryption device used for video, data links, missile test range communications (KG-95-1), and DS-3 (45 Mbps) telephone trunks (KG-95-2). Its capabilities include remote operation, remote status check, and remote over-the-air rekey exchange, in addition to new key management techniques and a fiber optics interface. The KG-95R is a composite of two KG-95-2s in a redundant configuration.

KIV-19: Is a miniaturized KG-194 that is functionally equivalent and interoperable with the KG-194 and KG-194A. The KIV-19 is not intended to replace the KG-194 and KG-194A but to fill new requirements and unique backfit requirements that have strict size and weight constraints. The KIV-19 is certified to secure all classification levels and categories. It is an UNCLASSIFIED controlled cryptographic item (CCI) when unkeyed. When keyed, the equipment carries a classification equal to that of the key installed.

HNF-81-1: Is approved for all levels of classified traffic and is designed to have one or two KG-81, KG-94, or KG-194 cryptographic devices. The terminal blocks in the rear of the HNF-81-1 provide connections between the input or output cabling and the connectors.

HNF-81-2: Is approved only for the transmission of unclassified or previously encrypted traffic unless it is transmitting bypassed information with prior approval of National Security Agency(NSA). The HNF-81-2 is mechanically similar to the HNF-81-1 except the terminal blocks in the rear of the frame are mounted on printed wiring boards giving the user cryptographic bypass ability.

KIV-19 RACK MOUNTS: Provides electrical and mechanical interfaces to accommodate 1, 2, or 3 KIV-19 units. The 19-inch rack mounts are designed for installation into any standard 19-inch cabinet. The Pulse Engineering KIV-19 Single Desk Top Rack Mount Model 5020-1 contains one removable power supply (100-240 VAC) for standard line power operation. The Pulse Engineering KIV-19 Dual Tray Rack Mount Model 5020-2 contains one removable power supply (100-240 VAC) for standard line power operation as well as a secondary (redundant) power supply. The Group Technologies Corporation KIV-19 2-Unit Rack Mount Adapter contains one removable power supply (84-264 VAC or 19-55 VDC) for standard line power operation. The Group Technologies Corporation KIV-19 3-Unit Rack Mount Adapter contains three KIV-19 Units only and operates from an external DC power source.

KG-194 CRYPTO TRAY, MODEL 3023-14: Accommodates 2 KG-94/194 units. The unit is a 19 rack mount configuration. The Pulse Engineering crypto tray contains two auto ranging internal power supplies (100-240 VAC, a redundant with automatic switch-over) for rack installation using an ADC patch panel and D/SUB (EIA-530) connectors.

KG-194 CRYPTO TRAY, MODEL 3023-16: Accommodates 2 KG-94/194 units. The unit is a 19 rack mount configuration. The Pulse Engineering crypto tray contains two auto ranging internal power supplies (100-240 VAC, a redundant with automatic switch-over) for rack installation using an EIA 530 patch panel and D/SUB (EIA-530) connectors.

KG-81/194 CRYPTO TRAY, MODEL 3033-2: Accommodates 2 KG-81/94/194 units. The unit is a 19 rack mount configuration. The Pulse Engineering crypto tray contains two auto ranging internal power supplies (100-240 VAC, a redundant with automatic switch-over) for rack installation using an EIA 530 patch panel and D/SUB (EIA-530) connectors.

KG-81/194 CRYPTO TRAY, MODEL 3033-3: Accommodates 2 KG-81/94/194 units. The unit is a 19 rack mount configuration. The Pulse Engineering crypto tray contains two auto ranging internal power supplies (100-240 VAC, a redundant with automatic switch-over) for rack installation using TROMPETER connectors (red and black I/O connections).

HNF-81 CRYPTO FRAME, P/N ON513100: Provides electrical and mechanical interfaces to accommodate 2 KG-81 units. It requires an external power source. The unit is a 19 rack mount configuration.
