BAE Systems is developing cyber defence capabilities to help aircraft detect and mitigate cyber attacks in real time, the company announced on 9 October.

The new capabilities include system analysis, reverse engineering and intrusion detection to protect personnel and aircraft from a variety of cyber threats.

BAE System’s new threat management capabilities include automated vulnerability assessment, subsystem hardening, and malicious system behaviour identification. The technology can be implemented as a stand-alone solution or be added to existing threat warning systems on fixed and rotary wing aircraft. According to the company, the new solution will not burden aircraft with excessive size, weight, and power demands.

Cheryl Paradis, director of threat management solutions at BAE Systems, said: ‘We understand how the threats to military aircraft are evolving, and we’re focused on developing technology that protects warfighters from current and emerging cyber threats.

‘This work will help provide them with the tools they need to successfully complete their missions.’
