Mils Electronic
Mils Electronic was a manufacturer of cipher machines and other encryption/decryption systems, located in Mils (Austria). The company was founded in 1947 in Trier (Germany) by Willi Reichert as Reichert Elektronik, but moved to Austria in 1967 to evade export restrictions and remain neutral and independent. At the same time, the company was renamed Mils Elektronic. 1 Although Mils supplied various types of cryptographic systems, their main niche was the unbreakable One-Time Pad (OTP). After a major restructuring in July 2017, Mils Electronic was dissolved in 2018.
