The techniques were developed by Rockwell Collins and its partners in DARPA’s High Assurance Cyber Military Systems (HACMS) program.

Architectural modeling and analysis, a secure microkernel and automatic generation of the application code are some of Rockwell Collins’ techniques based on mathematic reasoning. The demonstration took place in Sterling, Virginia, as part of a HACMS program demonstration, which showcased cyberscecurity platforms on unmanned aircraft systems and an enhanced soldier vision helmet.

The HACMS team includes Galois, Data 61, HRL and the University of Minnesota.
