BigBear.ai, Redwire partner to develop a cyberspace assessment platform for SpaceCREST; Brian Frutchey, Andrew Rush quoted
BigBear.ai has partnered with Redwire for the development of space cyber-scope capabilities for the space cyber resilience initiative through security assessment and testing known as SpaceCREST.
According to the MoU, the two companies will use simulation, emulation and looping hardware to establish a realistic test environment and provide SpaceCREST with a platform for evaluating the cybersecurity of space systems, announced Thursday. the partnership.
Brian Frutchey, chief technology officer of BigBear.ai, said the company’s collaboration with Redwire will support the cyber-resilience of space assets, which is currently a top priority for the federal government and the Department of Defense.
“A large and growing amount of critical infrastructure in the United States relies on space-based systems, and by partnering with Redwire, we can use our advanced predictive analytics capabilities to identify and protect against potential cyber vulnerabilities in an environment. high fidelity simulation, ”noted Frutchey. .
Additionally, Redwire President and COO Andrew Rush said the partnership’s digital engineering framework will enable commercial and government space initiatives to proactively maintain and secure space systems.
As part of this partnership, BigBear.ai will leverage its artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities in conjunction with Redwire’s Hyperion Operational Space Simulation Lab and the capabilities of the Advanced Configurable Open System Research Network to develop tools for performing vulnerability research on critical components of space infrastructure hardware. .
Redwire’s HOSS lab reached initial operational capacity in August and will support the partnership’s work under the MOU.
The work is expected to give the SpaceCREST initiative the ability to identify potential vulnerabilities and protect space systems from vulnerabilities.
As predictive technologies such as AI and machine learning become more prevalent in critical infrastructures across multiple domains, organizations must consider factors such as technology disruption and cost in their implementation strategies. implemented.
