TALIBAN CAPTURED COMMUNICATION RADIOS WITH ENCRYPTION CODES INTACT

Sunday, September 19th, 2021

 

Thanks to Gadi Adelman for sharing this information on the weaponry and equipment that the U.S. very thoughtfully left for the Taliban. You just don’t think it could possibly get any worse, but then it does!  Nancy  

FTA:
A case in point involves sophisticated American communications gear. AND
Magazine has learned via its sources on the ground in Afghanistan that
the Taliban now have access to at least 20 U.S. Military SINCGARS radios
(Harris Falcon III AN/PRC-160).
SINCGARS is the primary Combat Net Radio (CNR) for the US Army. It is a
VHF-FM radio system that operates on any or all of the 2,320 frequencies
between 30 and 87.975 MHz in 25 kHz increments. SINCGARS employs
frequency hopping, as its primary means of communication in a hostile
environment. SINCGARS is also capable of processing both analog and
digital data in addition to handling voice communications.
AND sources indicated that when the radios were captured all of the
documentation concerning them was captured as well. None of the radios’
encryption was “wiped. That means what is known as the AES256 crypto
fill and the frequency-hopping Sync fill are still loaded into these radios.
