dc.description.abstractUnmanned systems have been growing in prominence as platforms from which to conduct or support military operations. Operating systems built around the Robot Operating System (ROS) framework offer a number of measurable benefits which are at times stove piped within individual defense contracting companies and DOD entities. The adoption of one operating framework ROS-Military (ROS-M) would lead to cost savings in the form of reduction in program development cycles as well as an increase in reliability and operability. Cybersecurity for robotic systems, particularly UAV systems, is of great concern and preventing adversaries from gaining access to platforms must be ensured. The ability to securely control these ROS enabled platforms free from adversarial interference is of the upmost importance. The primary objective of this research is to enhance the ROS through implementation of security processes (authentication, authorization and encryption) as a means to meet military cyber security requirements for unmanned systems. In this presentation, we discuss ROS and ROS-2/ROS-M and our approach to testing the operating system against multiple threat vectors. We will highlight our simulation and experimental setup process along with preliminary analysis of ROS-2's behavior under various adversarial models.
