Coherent Technical Services (CTSi ) has received a contract to deliver tools to enable systematic testing of avionics cyber security for the US Air Force.

Under the contract, CTSi will design and demonstrate a software prototype tool that will provide an easy way to instrument the avionics, monitor relevant buses/interfaces and interact with/fuzz a variety of avionics under test.

As part of this effort, CTSi will define several fuzzing techniques for use in testing avionics equipment and air platforms cyber vulnerabilities. The techniques will be evaluated for demonstration as part of the programme.

CTSi will also design and develop an intuitive software user interface to provide the ability to conduct cyber testing quickly and easily. While the Phase I effort was only expected to define requirements for the hardware necessary to fully interact with the avionics, CTSi’s Mudbucket hardware will be used as the means to support demonstrating the software capability using real avionics.
