Cyberspace applications

Cyber Hardening for A&D Systems and Communications

Our Processing Solutions are Engineered to Protect your Mission

In the modern, sophisticated world, providing effective cyberspace security for aerospace and defense computing and communication systems has never been more critical or complex. Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting critical systems and sensitive information from digital attacks. Cybersecurity combats threats against networked systems and applications, whether those threats originate through direct connectivity or wirelessly.

Enhanced TrustedCOTS Capabilities

Security should be built-in into applications at the design stage and not “bolted on later.” Bolting on security is more complex (costly) and risky as it lacks a holistic, system-wide security approach that creates system vulnerabilities through more attack surfaces and vulnerabilities. Curtiss-Wright, working with our trusted partners, including Raytheon Intelligence & Space (Night Cover Security Suite) and Idaho Scientific (Cryptographic Suite), has created a holistic approach to cyberspace security. We build an adaptable hardware, software, and firmware layered approach to security across components, subsystems, connectivity, and data/communication links that cyber-harden them for the most contested missions. Curtiss-Wright’s Enhanced TrustedCOTS and support technologies build in an extensible security framework that can be updated to counter new threats as they emerge. This technology approach has been proven over many aerospace and defense programs. 

Enhance Security with TrustedCOTS Solutions

Designed using cutting-edge Trusted Computing techniques and mechanisms to enable the safe, reliable operation of embedded systems, our TrustedCOTS products provide confidence not only that systems are secure and un-compromised, but that critical data or IP will not benefit adversaries if hardware falls into enemy hands.

CSfC – Secure Your Information with PacStar ECS

The National Security Agency (NSA) Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program protects classified data by leveraging a two-layered approach using commercial security components. Compared to a traditional government-off-the-shelf (GOTS) Type 1 approach, a CSfC solution can be fielded in months instead of years and for a fraction of the investment. The PacStar ECS family of gateway solutions rapidly implements CSfC solutions, lowering costs and reducing risk by providing fully integrated, tested, and proven solutions for mission-critical communication. PacStar IQ-Core® Software manages PacStar ECS to simplify maintenance, unify management, reduce complexity, decrease downtime, and shorten training for PacStar ECS administrators.

PacStar CSfC Solutions

Secure solutions that enable the transmission of classified information using commercial-grade encryption solutions, eliminating the need for expensive, difficult-to-use, classified equipment.

Secure Wireless Communication Supporting Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-EUD for Mounted and Dismounted Connectivity

The goal of Secure Wireless Communications is to provide controlled access to classified or controlled unclassified information (CUI) over any RF transport in the field - between vehicles and end-users alike.

Secure Wireless Solutions for Tactical, Expeditionary, and Deployable Communications

PacStar communications solution products, technical expertise, integration, test, and certification experience in deployed and fixed networking systems based on commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) equipment provide our customers with a one-stop-shop for CSfC solutions.
