InstantEye Robotics forms cybersecurity group

InstantEye Robotics has announced a cybersecurity group has been tasked with the development and implementation of advanced cybersecurity measures across its robotic systems, the company said.

The charter of the InstantEye Cybersecurity Group is to assess continually any threats to data validity and integrity on InstantEye platforms and to develop measures in hardware, software and operational employment to minimize information risk.

Among the technologies under development is an encryption engine with a size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) sufficiently small that it can be deployed across the entire InstantEye family of systems. The device is tightly integrated into the system and is rapidly reconfigurable to quickly counter emerging threats as they are uncovered. The encryption engine is designed to allow different cipher methods to be used depending on customer requirements or threat environment demands, and it will employ blockchain concepts to ensure data integrity and to detect tampering attempts.

InstantEye Robotics is a division of Physical Sciences Inc., both located in Andover Massachusetts. InstantEye Robotics is a global leader in tactical unmanned aircraft systems. When customers need a reliable, portfolio-manageable, multi-mission system, they choose InstantEye.
