Special Forces get a small yet powerful cyber support device

Secure communications are a top priority for the unique nature of Special Forces missions, such as the one pictured featuring a U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier, attached to Special Operations Task Force-Afghanistan, providing security prior to an assault in the Alingar district, Laghman province, Afghanistan, Feb. 18, 2018. Recently fielded, the Tactical Key Loader, developed specifically for Special Operations Forces due to its smaller, dimmer screen and one-button key fill capability, provides cryptographic keys that block unauthorized individuals from accessing mission information.
