Frazer-Nash has commenced year three of the four-year ARCD research project, leading the MOD’s research into Generation-After-Next (GAN) Cyber Defence concepts.
ARCD is funded by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) with the goal to develop self-defending, self-recovering concepts for military operational platforms and technologies and an aspiration to achieve ‘Full Auto’ Cyber Defence.
Due to both the increasing complexity of military networks and systems and the sophisticated approaches of aggressors, it is becoming increasingly difficult for cyber defenders to respond quickly and effectively to incidents. ARCD aims to mitigate these threats by compiling advanced and novel research that can be matured to be applied into defence environments.
The project objectives are to achieve the following:
- The creation of a concept demonstrator capable of autonomously responding to cyber-attacks in the context of a military environment and mission.
- Enhance cyber and Machine Learning (ML) skills in the UK supply chain.
- Further developing understanding of strengths and limitations of ML technologies and their application into Cyber Defence.
Delivered through the Serapis Lot 6 framework, Frazer-Nash currently has over 45 suppliers on more than 50 contracts across many areas. Please click the boxes below for further information:
