Research Institution

JTRS tactical networks that employ mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) protocols, while providing new network centric capabilities for the warfighter, also present challenges for real-time cyber defense and cyber situational awareness. The JPEO JTRS therefore identified the need to protect tactical networks from cyber threats that can compromise a mission. To address this need, the ATC-NY team is developing CYTAN (CYbersecurity for TActical Networks), a suite of embedded software modules on JTRS radios to prevent, detect, and mitigate cyber attacks on the software-defined radios in tactical networks. In Phase II we identified cyber threats to SRW (Soldier Radio Waveform) tactical networks and designed prototypes of Government-selected cyber defenses. The purpose of Phase II.5 work is to build SRW defense modules using the JNE (JTRS Network Emulator), port a subset of our defenses to DataSofts SideBridge platform, identify SRW development tools, and prepare for field testing.
