Cobham joined industry colleagues in panel discussion on aircraft cybersecurity

Los Angeles, USA - This week, Cobham joined the Global Connected Aircraft (GRA) Summit in Los Angeles to discuss the current situation of aircraft Cybersecurity. Nils Helle, Director of Strategic Initiatives for Cobham SATCOM, joined colleagues from Thales and Intelsat to share his expert opinions on what the aviation industry can do to protect connected aircraft technologies against the threat of cyber intrusion.

Nils Helle highlighted Cobham's AVIATOR S Series, a leading example of industry innovation around the use of IP for the secure transfer of data between aircraft and ground automation systems, or more specifically Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) data.

Fred Cahill, Senior Vice President for Business Development and Technology at Cobham SATCOM said, "At Cobham we take the issue of cybersecurity very seriously and our participation in the GRA Summit is testament to that. Our attendance at these leading industry events and taking part in panelist discussions enables Cobham to share our expertise and provide thought leadership to the industry. We look forward to attending future events and ensuring that our contribution helps keep aircraft safe from the threat of cyber-attack."

The cybersecurity of cockpit connectivity is a vigorously discussed topic in the aviation industry today with the majority of airlines across the world considering cockpit and cabin connectivity solutions for their fleets.
