The Fox Shield cyber resilience system was developed to provide military platforms with better detection capabilities, attack warning, and mitigation.
“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,” said Michael Weber, technical manager for 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.”
The firm say that Fox Shield is the result of a multi-year effort from BAE Systems’ FAST Labs research and development team.
“The Fox Shield suite is designed to help platforms detect, respond, and recover from cyber attacks in real time. The system’s cyber resilience capabilities can be integrated into ground, air, and space vehicles to protect our warfighters and platforms from cyber attacks designed to access and degrade mission capabilities.”
It was developed with ongoing internal investment and builds upon baseline technology that has proven effective on other platforms as previously announced.
“The mature detection capability – technical readiness level eight – enables real-time detection of cyber attacks, enabling the platform and users to respond and recover from their effects and 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.”
