RNC Avionics Ltd develops security solutions for future Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems

Lancaster, UK (December 10, 2013) – RNC Avionics Ltd, a leading provider of ICT-based solutions for aviation security, today announced that they are a partner in the GAMMA (Global ATM security MAnagement) Consortium formed by 19 European stakeholders aiming to develop novel security solutions for future Air Traffic Management systems. The Consortium has signed an agreement with the Research Executive Agency of the European Commission, for a research programme aimed at enhancing security within the ATM domain.

The goal of the GAMMA project is the development of solutions to the emerging ATM vulnerabilities with practical proposals for implementation, also considering the new scenarios defined by the Single European Sky programme. For this purpose GAMMA will first perform a comprehensive assessment of the full set of security threats and vulnerabilities affecting the existing ATM system, considered as a ‘system of systems’ and covering operational as well as technological aspects. This analysis will provide the basis for GAMMA to develop a Security Management framework, representing a concrete proposal for the day-to-day operation of ATM security as well as define the requirements and architecture of a security solution, including the ability to manage incidents and crises spreading throughout the system. The solution will then be validated in dedicated exercises exploiting a validation platform including prototypes and demonstrators developed within the project. RNC Avionics will be developing advanced prediction models for the identified scenarios and will be involved in the implementation and validation of these models.

GAMMA is a project (Grant agreement no: 312382) worth around fifteen million euro co-financed by the Research Executive Agency of the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme and coordinated by Selex ES. The project stems from the recognition that there is a growing need to address new threats and vulnerabilities due, for instance, to the increased reliance on distributed enterprise computing and automated flow of information across a ground and airborne network.
