Monitor and Protect All Onboard Networks from Unauthorized Access and Disruption Due to Cybersecurity Events

Defend and protect critical data, systems, and networks onboard your aircraft. SystemX Aviation is a cyber defence and security software platform that protects onboard aircraft networks and improves an aircraft’s cybersecurity posture. A flexible solution, SystemX Aviation can be integrated directly on CCX Technologies hardware, in the cloud, or on dedicated 3rd party servers.

Typically the system includes our AP-250 Cybersecurity Appliance, our SystemX Secure Server, and a set of DataPHYs to collect data from the network. It’s designed to operate over bandwidth and latency restrictive communications links such as satellite and terrestrial radio. In addition, SystemX Aviation provides data monitoring and collection, configuration via remote access, and advanced firewall capabilities.

Powering the AP-250, the Secure Server, and the DataPHYs, the SystemX software can run on various platforms. In addition, the software is available for licensing, along with a development system so that third parties can add their own custom applications on top of the existing platform or running in secure containers.
