A persistent and growing threat to the safety and security of the U.S. (and global) aviation system lies in cyberspace. Protecting critical assets in a networked world is difficult enough, let alone in a highly complex and integrated system-of-systems such as our U.S. aviation system. As innovation proliferates and technology and capabilities rapidly evolve, however, so does the industry’s threat profile. Replete with numerous information and communications technologies, our aviation and aerospace system and associated infrastructure will continue to be a potential target for a large-scale cyber attack.

Working with industry, manufacturers, and other providers, ADS Infrastructure will focus on the funding the buildout of common, secure UTM infrastructure.
