At ISDEF in Tel Aviv this week Astronautics introduced its embedded cyber security technology to an audience of military, homeland security and emergency services professionals.
Aimed at countering the increasing threat from airborne platforms such as small unmanned aerial systems (UAS), these technologies provide unique ADS-B attack prevention, according to the company, and multilayered anomaly detection in communication protocols in order to avoid disruption and damage to air traffic control.
Similarly, they circumvent dangerous false alarms for pilots, thereby enabling continuous, uninterrupted traffic monitoring by pilots and control, in turn neutralising the potential risks of mid-air collision. Astronautics' cyber security package has been developed in response to specific threats and emerging risks in modern aviation, i.e cyber solutions for military network protocols to prevent attacks on fighter jets, helicopters and transport aircraft. A global player in the field of advanced avionics, Astronautics' clientele includes the Israeli Defence Forces and Ministry of Defence, as well as the armed forces and ministries of other nations, notably India, and various South American and European nations.
