Unmanned Systems: Security Without Compromise

With increasing deployment of autonomous vehicles and unmanned systems, security and data safety are key priorities for both manufacturers and consumers.

Networks are inherently vulnerable to cyber related threats and systems failures. Reliance on unverified or open channel communications and external input sources can open the door for false (or falsified) data, invalid mission throughput or other critical operational command failures. Whether these threats come via erroneous component failures or intentional malicious activities, building up your system's ability to defend against these threats is crucial.

In this session, industry leaders will discuss the latest advancements in embedded security and steps that unmanned vehicle systems stakeholders are taking to combat cyber attacks and minimize platform risks.
