Cybersecurity Requirements for UAS Operations


The proposed work will complete a literature review of cybersecurity concerns and resulting potential safety issues with the integration of UAS into the National Airspace System (NAS). The work aims 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?
