The Marine Corps Tactical Systems Support Activity conducted an extensive adversarial cyber test of the Light Armored Vehicle last month at Camp Pendleton in California.
The Marine Corps Systems Command’s LTV program manager required the technical assessment, the Department of the Navy said Monday.
Capt. Brian Greunke, network test engineer at MCTSSA, said the test aimed to identify potential cyber vulnerabilities in the vehicle and examine the potential impact of a vulnerability on missions.
“As vehicle platforms change vehicle control from a purely mechanical form to a digital form, the surface area for attacks increases significantly,” Greunke added.
Chim Yee, MCTSSA cyber engineer, said that adversarial cyber tests offer information that can support risk management and mitigation efforts.
