The company will research processes that can target security threats, helping the FAA develop policies and trainings to ensure flights remain safe. The company is taking a leading effort in helping establish an aerospace center of excellence in Milwaukee.

“Astronautics understands that safety and privacy of data transmitted to and from the aircraft is vital, and that is why Astronautics is also a leading provider of cybersecurity systems to the industry,” Astronautics President Chad Cundiff said. “We look forward to working with the FAA on this project.”
