  • BLUE Lightning Next Gen OT/ICS Network Security
    BLUE Lightning is a high speed/high capacity, rugged compute device that can discover, define, analyze and mitigate cyber threats & vulnerabilities. It monitors, detects and defends air, land, sea, space platforms & critical infrastructures, in real-time....

  • Control System Cyber Security for Air, Land, Sea and Space

    BLUE Lightning is a high speed, high capacity, rugged compute device that can discover, define, analyze and mitigate cyber threats and vulnerabilities. It offers cyber defense for rugged platforms and critical infrastructure. BLUE Lightning monitors, detects and if necessary, defends air, land, sea, and space platforms and critical infrastructures, in real-time. These proactive capabilities enable the platform to more readily disrupt and neutralize cyberattacks as they happen.

    BLUE Lightning utilizes endpoint protection technology to provide data security for platforms in the Air, Space, Land, Sea realms. BLUE Lightning is a complete control system network security solution that offers a unique method of anomaly detection and prevention. BLUE Lightning has been specifically designed and developed for real-time monitoring and detection of anomalous network activity. Additionally, the BLUE Lightning device has the ability to detect, identify and make defensive decisions via machine-to-machine engagements.

    How will BLUE Lightning benefit you?

    • Saves you money
    • Does not rely on known malware signatures
    • Learns normal operating parameters to identify small, but harmful changes within existing alert thresholds
    • Detects intrusions, malware, and abnormalities at the physical layer
    • Detects zero-day attacks
    • Defends against spoofing attacks even after successful exploit of the PLC or RTU
    • Includes non-malicious wear detection for conditions-based maintenance to increase equipment lifespan
    • Deployable in line with the network or as an out-of-band configuration
    • Scans and monitors industry standard protocols (Modbus, DNP3, BACNet, and GOOSE), others possible with development
    • Generates alarms that are saved to the sensor monitor for diagnosis and action

  • BLUE IQ Machine Learning Device
    BLUE IQ is a high-speed, high capacity, rugged compute device, that uses Machine Learning Content Analytics to perform complex analysis/decisions based on the content of the data being acquired, in real-time, on the platform....

  • Intelligent Data Management for Air, Land, Sea and Space Platforms

    Air, land, sea and space platforms generate an ever increasing volume of data, which, is outpacing the ability to effectively review and analyze the information. AMPEX has developed BLUE IQ to mediate this problem by providing cognitive data analytics using deep learning at the airborne, space borne or ground sensor.

    BLUE IQ is a high speed, high capacity, rugged compute device, which uses Machine Learning Content Analytics to perform complex analysis and decisions based on the content of the data being acquired, in real-time, on the platform.

    BLUE IQ moves analytics functionality to the point of data acquisition; offering data, image and video identification, tagging and annotation. Thus, reducing the workload for human operators/analysts.

    How will BLUE IQ benefit you?

    • Provides data and video identification and understanding at the sensor
    • Provides KLV annotation metadata within the FMV downlink
    • Provides cueing for the operator/analyst in the real-time feeds
    • Provides quick search recording index of objects of interest
    • Provides analysis and understanding of telemetry and EW data

    Our flexible convolutional neural network processor can be trained for a wide variety of identification functions, and then retrained as threats change. Eliminating the need for high power servers, our fully integrated Deep Learning System has been designed to work within our existing device platforms. BLUE IQ has been engineered for compatibility with our current hardware and in many cases, only minor modifications may be necessary.

  • Cyber Security
    for Industrial Control Systems

    AMPEX’s Cyber and Electronic Analysis, Development, and Integration Laboratory (CEADIL “see-dahl”) is the hub for the ICS cyber security solutions of your choice. Simple compliance is not good enough. Companies address ICS security issues after an attack. BE PREPARED. GET ATTACKED NOW!

    What the CEADIL does for you:

    • Cyber and electronic attacks against virtual replications of your ICS, with vendor hardware in-the-loop in the safety of the CEADIL
    • Attacking your ICS through less common, but highly susceptible attack surfaces like radio frequency (RF), antennas (i.e. microwave), and solar panels, in addition to IP network and human insider threat entry points
    • AMPEX service solutions are different because they focus on the unique, non-IP portion of the ICS pyramid.
    • Information technology (IT) experts are not enough to protect your operational technology (OT) and ICS architecture … AMPEX knows OT/ICS
    • ICS security R&D
    • Education, training, and incident & mission rehearsals
    • On-site consulting and remote monitoring

    Unique CEADIL Capabilities:

    • Major vendor hardware/software (Siemens, SEL, Honeywell, Schneider Electric, OPAL-RT)
    • RF and electromagnetic interference-shielded enclosure for testing wireless devices/communications on-site
    • Onsite manufacturing for rapid prototyping
    • Virtual links to national laboratories and cyber ranges
    • Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence
    • Certified Ethical Hackers
    • Certified SCADA Security Architects
    • Certified Hacking Forensics Investigators
    • Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP)
