A key management approach for unmanned aerial systems utilizes cryptographic protocols for dynamic group keying to secure the command and control channels while limiting the receipt of the sensor broadcasts to authorized users.

Secure Resilient Systems and Technology

Our group develops architectures and technologies for ensuring security and resiliency of mission-critical cyber-physical systems, from drones and satellites to high-performance secure cloud computing. We pursue innovative research and development through the problem analysis, rapid prototyping, and field testing phases, to ultimately deliver our technological solutions for Department of Defense and Intelligence Community uses.

Our group is made up of top scientists, engineers, and support staff who share a common passion for solving some of the hardest technical problems relevant to national security. If you are looking for a place where your work contributes to things that truly matter, check out our full-time internship and job openings. You may discover this is exactly the place you are looking for.
