Racal Ltd. 1 was a British manufacturer of military electronics such as radios and encryption devices. It was founded in 1950 and was once the 3rd largest electronics company in the UK. Over the years, Racal produced many different communications and cryptographic devices, with an increasing degree of sophistication. Some of their crypto-enabled products are listed below.

In 2000, Racal was sold to the French company Thomson-CSF (now: Thales), who continued part of the former Racal product line, which is still being developed in the UK. One example is the Gougar 2000 range of covert radios. After 2000 the name Racal has gradually disappeared.
