Abstract:

We report the implementation of an in-band chaotic scrambler for securing wireless analog video. In this demonstration system, an analog video signal is injected into a chaotic oscillator and the output is transmitted through a standard wireless video link. At the receiver, a descrambler separates the video from the chaotic signal in real time. Experimental results show the scrambled signal effectively hides the original video image, yet the descrambler recovers the original color video with reasonable clarity and detail. Compared to digital encryption, chaotic scrambling offers an efficient, lowcost alternative for masking time-critical analog communications.
