AbstractThe continual advances in military system technologies compel the Test & Evaluation community to constantly mature, adapt and apply innovative methodologies and numerical methods. This progression requires a clear understanding of technique capabilities and limitations. With respect to telemetry, the encrypted telemetry requirement trend is increasing at a rate faster than telemetry encoder designers can address the need in current, future and legacy systems. The primary objective of this technical paper and associated presentation is to provide the design details pertaining to adapting a commercial AES256 block encryption algorithm for use with persistent streaming serial data like telemetry. The published material will also provide details relating algorithm integration variants and the associated impact on the data rate, bit error rate and data latency.
