What miniaturized cryptographic devices are available for transponder and radio applications in small UAVs?

DSIAC was asked to find small size, weight, and power (SWaP) cryptographic devices for Mode-5 transponders and radios in small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) applications.  DSIAC searched open sources for commercially available systems and the Small Business Technology Transfer/Small Business Innovation Research (STTR/SBIR) database for developmental efforts that were compiled into a matrix of systems with characteristics allowing comparison by size, volume, and weight and delivered to the inquirer.
