Paris, France, and Vienna, Austria – October 5, 2021

Atos has been awarded a deal by the European Area Agency (ESA) beneath ARTES C&G plan to acquire a merchandise to increase the cybersecurity of Electrical Floor Aid Gear (EGSE) platforms which exam the electrical system of satellites ahead of they are becoming introduced.

As cyber risks no for a longer time prevent at terrestrial borders, Atos will focus on setting up devices that stop and counter cyber-assaults searching for to take handle or to injury satellites or screening machines during screening phase. This involves spanning all devices to detect present and long term vulnerabilities, mapping all probable threats, acquiring new protection functions, ensuring total targeted visitors encryption, guaranteeing conversation integrity, and continually checking the protection. Atos is the European chief in cybersecurity providers with a international crew of in excess of 6,000 protection experts and will use its skills to ensure satellites are safe and secure.

Atos is delighted to lead with ESA to this step ahead in protecting ESA satellites. This project signifies a main problem for Atos as, until now, electrical screening was operated offline in a closed and controllable setting – which did not involve any distinct protection mechanisms. As tactics evolve and distant operations are now carried out on line from distant locations, it is required to undertake correct cybersecurity actions. In this course of action, many prolonged-proven distant protocols (SCPI, basic telnet, PUS/EDEN) will have to be secured – which could have the effects of environment new standards throughout the whole EGSE sector.

“We are happy to deliver our cybersecurity skills to the satcom community to secure the EGSE devices we have been acquiring and mastering for many several years. It is a real honor to lead to this evolution of the satellite sector.” reported Bruno Milard, VP, Head of Aerospace and Defense Electronics at Atos.

This project is co-funded by ESA and its outcomes will serve the Satcom industrial and institutional industry. Additional details about the study project https://artes.esa.int/projects/cyber-protection-egse-scoe and about Atos’ answers for electrical satellite screening https://atos.internet/egse.
