Rear Adm. Casey Moton, program executive officer for Unmanned and Small Combatants, said the U.S. Navy is testing anti-tamper technologies in its prototypes of unmanned vessels to protect such assets from cyber hackers and other vulnerabilities, National Defense reported Wednesday.

He said the service has considered the need to counter tampering of its vessels during wargaming activities and other studies.

“From our standpoint, we are doing some robust things for the fact that these vessels will operate [network] capable. Certainly the cyber efforts are robust,” Moton said during a recent Center for Strategic and International Studies-hosted webinar.
