United States : THALES, RAYTHEON launches ThalesRaytheon System for Signs of Hacking

June 21, 2014

Thales and Raytheon announced that they have introduced a product that alerts consumers to disruptive hacking of air-traffic radars.

During the launch at Eurosatory, it exhibits Cyber Picture checks for anomalies in radar data which could indicate cyber attacks or electronic attacks.

Thales and Raytheon s partnership formed by ThalesRaytheon Systems, Cybair Picture will show telltale signs of hacking such as planes flying beyond the normal range of a radar or remaining visible to the radar while flying behind a mountain.

The system uses individual monitoring units dubbed the RadBox by Thales, launched last year, which operate together to form the Cybair Picture package. We are the only company offering this type of product, she said.

As per Aguero, a product to spot the consequences of hacking was necessary because tools to stop hackers from getting into a radar network could not be relied upon, We cannot rely on virus checking; hackers are always one step ahead, she said. Nobody is strong enough to stop attacks.
