West Star Aviation has inked a dealership agreement with CCX Technologies to sell, install, and maintain onboard products that provide security and flight data to operators."It is gratifying to see the aviation industry recognizing the critical need for onboard cyber security solutions and actionable data," said Chris Bartlett, president of CCX Technologies.What differentiates CCX Technologies' onboard offering from other solutions on the market is that since they are installed on the aircraft, operators have the ability to monitor their inflight networks with data sourced directly from the aircraft. CCX Technologies' AP-250 Cybersecurity Appliance improves the cyber security of aircraft by showing operators what's actually happening on their aircraft.The AP-250 features two dual-band WiFi radios with encryption and a 1/2 km range, plus a 1 TB solid-state drive with all data encrypted at rest. Equipped with Advanced LTE and a custom antenna, the AP-250 enables higher throughput, lower power consumption, and better coverage so more users can connect. The dataPHY is a compact device that receives onboard avionics databus data such as ARINC 429 for advanced monitoring for anomalies and other flight-critical data events."All this recent attention on security breaches has encouraged operators to want onboard cyber security," said Aaron Berg, Avionics Technical Sales Manager, West Star. "It's a rising concern and an emerging trend we see escalating." As aircraft are becoming more and more connected, products like the AP-250 are becoming necessary to ease operators' concerns.
