CHICAGO (August 1, 2011) - Rockwell Collins today introduced its SecureOne™ cross domain technologies, a family of high assurance technologies that provide trusted multi-classification information sharing for military tactical systems. These technologies are another Rockwell Collins innovation in the application of an open systems approach to military avionics solutions. The announcement was made at the Unified Cross Domain Management Office Conference in Chicago.
Today, manned and unmanned military aircraft perform missions requiring simultaneous processing, communication, display, and storage of data at different classification levels. With the use of the SecureOne technologies, military aircraft can meet those requirements without needing to install physically separate equipment to securely protect the different levels of classified data.
The result is that users can have access to unclassified and classified information on the same display, which provides enhanced situational awareness, with reduced user workload and a reduction in size, weight and power on the aircraft.
“This offering retains the best of Rockwell Collins open systems heritage, while adding the capability to protect multiple levels of classified information being handled simultaneously,” said Dave Nieuwsma, vice president and general manager of Mobility and Rotary Wing Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
The SecureOne cross domain technologies consist of five key building blocks:
- SecureOne Processor – A processing technology and architecture that supports multiple applications executing simultaneously with data at different classification level
- SecureOne Guard – A high assurance guard, which is a software application that resides in a partition of a SecureOne Processor, capable of autonomously mediating information flow between security classifications based on a configurable ruleset
- SecureOne Network - A network architecture that supports communication between multiple processors and applications executing simultaneously with data at different classification levels
- SecureOne Display - A display technology and architecture that supports the simultaneous access and display of data at different classification levels
- SecureOne Storage - A storage technology and architecture that supports the simultaneous receipt, storage, and retrieval of data at different classification levels
The SecureOne cross domain technologies are available for upgrades to existing Rockwell Collins solutions and can be incorporated into new avionics applications.
