NSA Awards Harris $41.6 Million For Secure WLAN

The NSA has just ordered $41.6 Million worth of Harris SecNet54 wireless routers. Based off of standard 802.11a/b/g standards, the accesspoints radios are hooked into hardware cryptographic accelerators, turning them into a high level encrypted VPN device. This use of higher level encryption over normal protocols makes the units a bit less proprietary but alot more secure. I wonder how long before wardrivers pick up these units in the field?
