Mobilicom has become a member of the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and Fortress Information Security’s Trusted Cyber Program. The Cybersecurity Working Group is developing enterprise cybersecurity standards to address cyber risks specific to uncrewed systems and robotics. Mobilicom joins as a contributing member of the group comprised of leading defense, drone, and cybersecurity companies including Boeing, Boston Dynamics, Northrup Grumman, and Raytheon.
SETTING NEW STANDARDS FOR CYBERSECURITY
The AUVSI Cybersecurity Working Group is targeting the release of baseline industry standards as early as May 2023. This will provide a critical foundation for the deployment of uncrewed vehicles in a secure and safe manner.
AUVSI’s Michael Robbins, Executive Vice President, Government & Public Affairs, commented, “The industry is at a turning point where uncrewed systems solutions are readily available to the market today for applications ranging from military to commercial. As market adoption is set to take off, a cyber-secure foundation built on universal industry standards among industry stakeholders and suppliers will help to ensure the economic and operational potential of uncrewed vehicles is reached. We are very pleased to have Mobilicom join the Cybersecurity Working Group.”
TURNING FIELD EXPERTISE INTO AN INDUSTRY BASELINE
As a veteran vendor in the uncrewed industry for defense applications, Mobilicom brings extensive field-proven experience to the working group. The company will be valuable in turning the criteria into practical implementation, ensuring that the standard baseline is both relevant and useful to industry stakeholders. Mobilicom’s ICE Cybersecurity Suite is one of the company’s flagship solutions and is the world’s first AI-based 360° software cybersecurity system for small-sized drones, robotics, and autonomous platforms.
“We are proud to join the AUVSI Cybersecurity Trusted Working Group as a contributing member,” said Mobilicom CEO Oren Elkayam. “Over the past two years, Mobilicom has pioneered cybersecurity world-firsts in uncrewed small-sized drones and robotics through our unmatched innovation. We believe it is essential that industry leaders collaborate to establish strong cybersecurity standards for the uncrewed and autonomous sectors. Mobilicom is committed to ensuring that our customers can safely and securely deploy uncrewed vehicles for their missions.”
