A hack-proof drone has been unveiled by the Pentagon’s research wing tasked with creating breakthrough technologies for America’s national security needs.
High Assurance Cyber Military Systems (HACMS) is a new program used by the drones to prevent cyberattacks, the military blog Defense Tech reported Wednesday. The technology, which was developed for the Defense Advance Research Project Agency (DARPA), has been in the works for years, Kathleen Fischer, HACMS program manager, told the website.
“The software is designed to make sure a hacker cannot take over control of a [Unmanned Aerial System]. The software is mathematically proven to be invulnerable to large classes of attack,” Ms. Fisher told Defense Tech.
