Reinventing security to protect airspace

Cybersecurity has emerged as one of the most important issues in modern ATC systems. As a technology leader in cybersecurity, Rohde & Schwarz was part of the team that worked on EUROCAE ED-205 to define the security certification processes for ANSPs and manufacturers. Focused on security by design, the new R&S®Series5200 radio is based on our decades of interdisciplinary expertise in cybersecurity. Implementing security at the earliest stage of development, Rohde & Schwarz ensures that nothing interferes with air traffic control operations.

The new R&S®Series5200 radio redefines security via:

  • State-of-the-art network separation using the security by design concept
  • Strong network encryption in combination with e.g. R&S®SITLine or R&S®TrustedVPN
  • Reliable network monitoring for early and precise detection of problems caused by infected endpoints, misconfiguration or cyberattacks
  • Hardening of operating systems and software
  • Easy integration into secure infrastructures with no need for additional elements
  • Multiple redundant LAN interfaces providing support for integration of the radio into safety critical network infrastructures for both voice and data communications
  • Multiple Ethernet ports enabling the user to connect to separate and redundant network infrastructures

The R&S®Series5200 radio exceeds the international EUROCAE ED-137 standard, setting a new benchmark for security.

Register today for the exclusive launch event at World ATM Congress 2020 and learn more about the security by design concept of the R&S®Series5200 radio and the CERTIUM® architecture.

ATC challenges and the technological answer

Increasing global air travel, rapid technological change, growing threats of cyber-attacks and limited resources pose great challenges for air traffic control. While safety and availability without compromise are given requirements, operations must remain efficient and flexible.

Introducing CERTIUM®, both the answer to these challenges as well as a promise to ATC community:

  • An advanced ATC communications suite from the microphone to the antenna
  • Increasing safety, security and efficiency beyond existing market standards

Discover CERTIUM® at the World ATM Congress 2020 and register today for an exclusive launch event.
