Abstract
Techno-Sciences Inc. plans to develop specific standards for security related applications for control systems and intelligent electronic devices, which can be incorporated into existing systems without interfering with control functions and disturbing their real-time nature. The proposed effort will also establish metrics to guide events to log in a control systems network. The architecture will use emerging wireless technologies which demonstrate superior performance in multipath environments with better use of the spectral bandwidth. The various innovations are required in constructing system architecture and procedures, and to create a standard which is easily and robustly implemented across various control systems making it reference for vendors and users and results in increased security of control systems. With unique set of expertise in the fields of control systems and remote monitoring through wire and wireless technologies along with its university tie-ups TSi will address all the necessary challenges in an aggressive work plan.
