Develop the unhackable drone: Dr. Dewar addresses security in safety-critical systems in free webcast today

WASHINGTON, 28 April 2015. Can unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), also commonly called drones, be truly unhackable, or might all unmanned vehicles be susceptible to falling into the wrong hands? It is essential, perhaps now more than ever before, to engineer safety- and mission-critical systems and platforms within a secure environment, taking care to select and implement the optimal digital development workflow.

Intelligent Aerospace and AdaCore address security in safety-critical and mission-critical unmanned aircraft systems development in a rare, unique, and free event today. Register now to take part.

When it comes to unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), virtually everyone is talking about and concerned with privacy issues – as though drones were robotic peeping Toms. The much larger and more critical issue, however, is security – without it, the potential exists for control of drones and even swarms of drones to be usurped and used to inflict harm. UAS hardware and software must be designed with development tools proven to be effective in the design and deployment of safety-critical and mission-critical systems and vehicles.

In this webcast, sponsored by AdaCore, learn from industry experts how to select the optimal development tools and processes to ensure the safety, security, and reliability of real-time unmanned aircraft, onboard software, and ground control solutions.

Dr. Robert Dewar is co-founder and President of AdaCore and Emeritus Professor of Computer Science at New York University. With a focus on programming language design and implementation, Dr. Dewar has been a major contributor to Ada throughout its evolution and is a principal architect of AdaCore's GNAT Ada technology. He has co-authored compilers for SPITBOL (SNOBOL), COBOL, and Ada, and has also written several real-time operating systems. Dr. Dewar has delivered papers and presentations on programming language issues and safety certification and, as an expert on computers and the law, he is frequently invited to conferences to speak on Open Source software, licensing issues, and related topics.
