Boeing delivers cross-domain technology to GA-ASI
Boeing has announced that it has completed the first delivery of its tactical cross-domain technology, eXMeritus HardwareWall, to General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc (GA-ASI). The systems will be integrated into the Ground Control Station (GCS) of the Predator/Reaper UAV to improve the ability of intelligence analysts and warfighters to securely access videos and imagery from the MQ-1Predator and MQ-9 Reaper.
According to Boeing, the delivery is part of a contract from GA-ASI that includes additional deliveries of HardwareWall and associated information assurance and engineering support. The contract is part of the US Air Force’s GCS Modernisation Programme.
Predator and Reaper provide tactical and strategic intelligence to battle commanders in theatre, and the eXMeritus HardwareWall solution provides the fast, secure transfer of real-time information, enabling greater collaboration and information sharing across multiple secure networks.
The cross-domain capability is based on technology from Boeing eXMeritus HardwareWall that enables the secure transfer of information among networks operating at different security levels. eXMeritus HardwareWall is one of only a select number of technologies listed on the Unified Cross Domain Management Office Baseline, a list of validated solutions already certified and accredited by sponsoring agencies.
