2015 was a busy year for API's Secure Systems & Information Assurance (SSIA) lines, which includes the SST and Emcon brands. Several new TEMPEST products made their debut this year, broadening our roster of highly secure communications offerings.
Emcon TEMPEST Brother Colour MFC-9340CDW Printer, Scanner & Fax
Emcon’s Secure TEMPEST version of the Brother MFC-9340cdw is the perfect choice for today’s multipurpose office. This fast, reliable digital colour All-in-One with duplex (2-sided) printing incorporates the time-saving addition of single-pass duplex scanning.
Emcon Two and Four Port TEMPEST Level I DVI DeskSavers
Both the two and four port DVI DeskSaver models from Emcon provide the highest possible port-to-port isolation (through the use of unidirectional data diodes) between two or four connected computers. They are ideally suited for any office environment looking to conserve space and maximize productivity, such as those outlined in the Government of Canada’s dynamic Workplace 2.0 Initiative, while maintaining the highest level of security. Several cable options are available for easy configuration management.
SST Secure Data Hub
The SST Secure Data Hub is a portable encryption unit designed to facilitate secure communications. It's ease of transport makes the Secure Data Hub an ideal choice for mobile office settings. The Secure Data Hub encrypts and securely transmits sensitive and classified information for up to four connected devices, including tablets and laptops.
SST Cisco VoIP Telephone
The ST7965TF is ideal where a feature-rich colour display VoIP telephone is required for TEMPEST environments. Based on the Cisco 7965G, the SST TEMPEST VoIP telephone augments the advanced OEM with security features such as onboard fibre Ethernet and push to talk functionality on the handset. The large colour display and intuitive navigation combine toprovide an enhanced user experience. The ST7965TF supports SIP and SCCP signalling protocols with additional security features. The G.722 codec and wideband functionality combine to provide greater voice clarity andintelligibility with reduced listener fatigue, without increasing bandwidth requirement. This TEMPEST VoIP telephone combines industry leading Cisco technology supporting multiple QoS and VLAN options and media encryption capabilities with the proven engineering, integration, and compliance capabilities of SST.

Thin Client SV510TF Design
Detailed below is an overview of my latest project and how I managed to fulfil the design brief and meet the cost expectations of the Sales Department.
The project brief was to design a TEMPEST Level A Thin Client using the HP510 OEM with the main objective being to keep the unit as small and good looking as possible. My utilisation of right angled connectors and small back shells meant that I was able to keep the final size not much bigger than the OEM donor unit. A risk when striving to minimise the product size is that assembly may prove impossible. I found that the best way to ascertain if production grade assembly would be possible was by using the triad point on parts in Solid Works and manuvering them into position as they would be done on the shop floor. Once all components are mated in position the Interference Validation test is a useful tool which highlights any parts which are touching or overlapping.
We are always trying to produce the most attractive products possible but I was also mindful of the cost associated with doing so. Often in our line of work aesthetics very much come second to function but on this occasion the SV510TF Thin Client was a great opportunity to design a stylish yet cost effective product. By adding an oversize radius on the top front of the box I was able to give it a more interesting form – but still maintaining a simple stylish look.
Adding this feature did increase the manufacturing cost, however by working with our supplier I was able to reduce costs in other areas to compensate. The welds were moved inboard to make it easier and quicker to manufacture and the silk screen was merged onto one screen to halve the cost.
In the design of TEMPEST products cooling is paramount. A wave guide beyond cut off strategy is adopted with our hole sizes/position relative to each other to allow for cooling. I then shaped these holes on the top and front faces to arrow like shapes pointing centrally down the unit giving a symmetric effect. These “arrow” shapes also point towards the user interaction with the product, mainly the power button and USB ports.
The entire unit is made from 3 sheet metal parts and one simple machining. Reducing component quantities is a great way to reduce build time and save money. Where ever possible larger, heavier items were kept at the bottom of the unit (PSU, fibre optic transiver, IEC) to try and make the unit more stable. As a further option I designed a simple stand, this is unobtrusive to the design but provides even better stability.
All in all it’s a nice clean simple product. It looks brilliant and does the job required of it. The SV510TF is now CFTCS certified to TEMPEST level A and available through www.sst.ws with a variety of options.
