BAE Systems reports it is developing cyber-defense capabilities to help aircraft detect and mitigate cyber-attacks.

The capabilities will include automated vulnerability assessment, sub-system hardening, and malicious system behavior identification.

"We understand how the threats to military aircraft are evolving, and we're focused on developing technology that protects warfighters from current and emerging cyber threats," said Cheryl Paradis, director of Threat Management Solutions at BAE Systems. "This work will help provide them with the tools they need to successfully complete their missions."

The solution will not burden aircraft with excessive size, weight, or power demands, BAE Systems said.
