Scalable Network Technologies launches new offering to counter network attacks

Realistic representation of network battlespace under cyber attack for testing and training

By CBR Staff Writer

Scalable Network Technologies, a provider of wireless network modeling and simulation, has launched a software capability that enables integration of cyber warfare communication effects into a live virtual constructive (LVC) environment.

The new offering provides training and analysis capabilities to counter the vulnerability of military systems to computer network attacks (CNA).

The battlefield modeling and simulation can be overly optimistic, risking and/or perpetuating negative training without the inclusion of cyber warfare communications effects.

The ability to analyse and train for the impact of cyber warfare on mission outcome is improved by integrating fidelity communication models that incorporate network attack/defense, as well as performance aberrations caused by various environmental factors.

The new synthetic cyber warfare test bed is capable of realistically representing a network-centric battlespace under cyber attack for testing and training applications. The test bed is achieved by integrating SNT’s EXata/cyber with COTS Computer Generated Forces (CGF).

Cyber warfare models are developed and implemented within Exata/cyber. For the integration, both tools take advantage of an Interface Control Document (ICD) that works via the HLA signal and data interactions to facilitate communications modeling between HLA federates.
