Protection & Resilience Of Ground Based infRastructures for European Space Systems

Brief Summary:

PROGRESS focussed on improving the security and resilience of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and its results are also applicable to earth observation infrastructure and assets.

At the start of the project a generic GNSS system was designed with its associated augmentation system and this was assessed with regards to vulnerability from intentional malicious threats with a low probability but high impact. PROGRESS focussed on those threats that have the potential to increase in the coming years. The resulting prioritisation of threats and scenarios were used as input to develop a prototype Security Management Solution (SMS). PROGRESS SMS ia a centralized solution able to automatically detect malicious actions with a built-in reconfiguration capability allowing to ensure the overall system Quality of Service.
