Air Force ground control stations get secure info-sharing boost

Boeing has delivered a tactical cross-domain solution designed to boost secure information sharing to General Atomics for integration into the ground control stations used for Predator and Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles, Boeing said May 1.

The eXMeritus HardwareWall technology is designed to improve the ability of  intelligence analysts and warfighters to securely access videos and imagery from the MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper, the company said.

The cross-domain capability for the ground control stations enables secure transfer of information among networks operating at different security levels and has received a stamp of approval from the Unified Cross Domain Management Office, the company said.

The technology was provided through a contract awarded to Boeing by General Atomics that includes delivery of HardwareWall and associated information assurance and engineering support, Boeing said.
