Research Institution
Vigilant Cyber Systems, Inc. (VCS) proposes to design and develop the Framework for Avionics Security Testing (FAST) to ensure the creation of cyber resilient aircraft systems by reducing testing complexity, reducing testing cost, and generating more valuable results. Just as Metasploit is an industry standard framework supporting offensive cyber on traditional IT systems, FAST is designed as a framework specifically geared towards testing of avionics and air platform protocols.
