ARLINGTON, Va. BAE Systems has unveiled a next-generation cyber-threat detection and mitigation solution for U.S. military platforms called Fox Shield to help platforms detect and respond to cyber attacks in real time.

According to the company, the Fox Shield suite's cyber resilience capabilities can be integrated into ground, air, and space vehicles to protect warfighters and platforms from cyber attacks designed to access and degrade mission capabilities.

The Fox Shield solution is the result of a multi-year effort from BAE Systems’ FAST Labs research and development team. It was developed with ongoing internal investment and builds upon baseline technology that has proven effective on other platforms as previously announced, the company claims.

The system's detection capability is intended to be implemented on existing platform computer systems or as a stand-alone solution that provides protection while aiming to limit impacts to size, weight, and power constraints.
