Atos wins R&D project with ESA to improve cybersecurity of satellite testing platforms

Paris, France, and Vienna, Austria – October five, 2021

Atos has been awarded a contract by the European Room Company (ESA) under ARTES C&G software to produce a item to increase the cybersecurity of Electrical Floor Support Machines (EGSE) platforms which test the electrical technique of satellites ahead of they are getting introduced.

As cyber pitfalls no more time cease at terrestrial borders, Atos will emphasis on developing devices that reduce and counter cyber-assaults trying to find to consider control or to harm satellites or testing machines for the duration of testing period. This involves spanning all devices to discover present-day and foreseeable future vulnerabilities, mapping all doable threats, establishing new safety capabilities, ensuring comprehensive website traffic encryption, guaranteeing communication integrity, and repeatedly checking the safety. Atos is the European chief in cybersecurity services with a world crew of more than six,000 safety specialists and will use its skills to guarantee satellites are risk-free and secure.

Atos is delighted to contribute with ESA to this step ahead in shielding ESA satellites. This project represents a main obstacle for Atos as, until eventually now, electrical testing was operated offline in a shut and controllable natural environment – which did not involve any individual safety mechanisms. As practices evolve and distant functions are now done on the net from distant spots, it is required to adopt acceptable cybersecurity steps. In this approach, many long-proven distant protocols (SCPI, basic telnet, PUS/EDEN) will have to be secured – which could have the impact of setting new criteria throughout the overall EGSE market.

“We are happy to deliver our cybersecurity skills to the satcom local community to secure the EGSE devices we have been establishing and mastering for many a long time. It is a actual honor to contribute to this evolution of the satellite market.” said Bruno Milard, VP, Head of Aerospace and Defense Electronics at Atos.

This project is co-funded by ESA and its final results will serve the Satcom commercial and institutional sector. Extra facts about the investigate project and about Atos’ alternatives for electrical satellite testing
