BAE Systems to Support F-35 Mission Planning; Secures Another Data Security Patent

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BAE Systems has signed a $3.8 million contract to continue supplying the secure operating system that runs the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter’s mission-planning software.

“This demonstrates our expertise in providing innovative cyber solutions that meet our customers’ unique information-sharing needs.”

The company’s operating system collects data at different security levels and is used by the aircraft’s software to develop the mission plan, which includes intelligence, weather, communications and navigation. That information is then loaded on to the jet for mission execution. When it is complete and the plane has returned, the operating system parses the data according to its security classification. The process, known as a cross domain transfer, occurs within seconds.

“The most advanced aircraft in the world demands the most sophisticated technology in the world,” said John Lewington, director of Cyber Security Solutions for BAE Systems. “This demonstrates our expertise in providing innovative cyber solutions that meet our customers’ unique information-sharing needs.”

Trusted computer systems are a cornerstone of the cyber security market, and BAE Systems technology continues to be recognized for its capabilities. The XTS-400 Trusted Computer System recently received a fifth patent for its ability to control information access between processes, file systems objects and devices, complementing existing security and integrity safeguards.
