BAE Contracts For F-35 Secure Operating System
The BAE operating system collects data at different security levels and is used by the aircraft’s software to develop the mission plan, including intelligence, weather, communications and navigation.
When the aircraft has returned to base, the operating system “parses the data according to its security classification,” BAE said. The process, known as a cross domain transfer, occurs within seconds.
