Cybersecurity Requirements for UAS Operations (A38_A11L.UAS.78)

The proposed work will complete a literature review of cybersecurity concerns and resulting potential safety issues with the integration of UAS into National Airspace System (NAS). The aim of the work is to support the establishment of a baseline model to identify and assess cybersecurity related risks of integrating UAS into NAS, and undertaking a survey of strategies for managing such risks. Specifically, some of the questions this review effort intends to answer are:

  • What is the cybersecurity threat landscape around UAS systems and the integration of UAS into NAS?
  • What strategies for managing the evolving cybersecurity risks exist and what is their relevance to UAS?
  • What are the general cybersecurity use cases for UAS?
  • What are some mitigation strategies for minimizing cyber risks to UAS operations?
