Abstract: The use of location-based solutions has improved significantly over the last few years. However, data encryption has become very important to maintain confidentiality and privacy, especially in the military and civil fields. This paper will present an application that encrypts data on the location and movements of military personnel or civilian researchers within an area on a specific mission, Using two transmission circuits and one receiver that is controlled by a microcontroller programmed by the encryption algorithm. This application is used and modified in several situations and each case depends on the nature of the mission and the nature of the surrounding environment. The proposed system is tested in three different environments and achieves good results. This application can meet the confidentiality, authentication, simplicity and practicality of security issues as a result of frequency and speed tests.
