Harris Systems Limited has been awarded a contract from the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (UK MOD) for the Common-Good High-Grade INFOSEC Module (Programmable), or CHIM(P), programme. The contract is valued at approximately 4 million pounds (approximately $7 million U.S.).

The CHIM(P) programme will introduce a reprogrammable Core Cryptographic Module (CCM) and the first of the next-generation multipurpose, reconfigurable End Cryptographic Units (ECUs) into the UK MOD equipment inventory during 2007 for both enhanced link and Internet Protocol (IP) packet encryption applications.

The CHIM(P) programme is based upon the Harris Sierra II Programmable Cryptographic Module and will provide cryptographic protection to the TOP SECRET UK EYES ONLY classification. The Harris CHIM(P) CCM and ECU will be formally evaluated by CESG, the UK National Technical Authority for high-assurance applications.

"The selection of the Harris Sierra II Programmable Cryptographic Module as the security solution for the CHIM(P) programme is a further recognition of its advanced technology and superior performance," said Paul Taylor, secure products business manager, Harris Systems Limited.
