ABSTRACT: Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) proposes to conduct research leading to the design and development of Avionics Systems Susceptibility and Risk Analysis Toolkit (ASSURANT) and supporting disciplien to enable avionics engineers and cyber defense xperts to comprehensivelyl analyze susceptibility assessment of avionics systems and to determine how mitigation and protection strategies will reduce risk. ASSURANT will use a number of vulnerability analysis and modeling, hardware and software supply chain risk mitigation, and analysis of optimal mitigation control. BENEFIT: The anticipated benefits of the proposed ASSURANT solution includes: 1. ability to model avionics systems and perform vulnerabilities analysis in a highly automated manner, ability to analyze the minimization of mission failure risks by adopting various mitigation and controls, and ability to share and reuse models and analysis results.
