Flexible Multi-Domain Cyber Resilience Suite
BAE Systems unveiled the FOX SHIELD next-generation cyber threat detection and mitigation solution for US military Platforms on 13 October.
Designed to help detection, response and recovery from cyber attacks in real time, the system’s cyber resilience can be integrated into land, air and naval platforms to protect from attacks designed to access and degrade mission capabilities. The solution is the result of a multi-year effort from BAE Systems’ FAST Labs R&D team, developed with internal investment and building upon baseline technology that has proven effective on other platforms. The mature detection capability (TRL 8) enables real-time detection of cyber attacks, allowing platform and operators to respond and recover from their effects, ensuring mission continuity. The detection capability can be implemented on existing platform computer systems or as a stand-alone solution that provides protection while limiting impacts to size, weight, and power constraints.
“Cyber protection was not necessarily a mission-critical capability when some of these platforms were first developed. That’s why we designed the FOX SHIELD cyber resilience system to be easily integrated into new and legacy platforms,” explained Michael Weber, Technical Manager for the FAST Labs Cyber Technology group at BAE Systems. “Security for our warfighters and their platforms is our mission, and this solution offers valuable protection in the cyber domain.”
