Users can fortify avionics against cyber security threats with embedded features for trusted ways to add cyber mitigation to existing and new designs.

BOHEMIA, N.Y. – Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing the Total-ACE CR cyber-resilient MIL-STD-1553 avionics databus interface for secure networking in a variety of aerospace and defense applications.

The Total-ACE CR component is a drop-in replacement for DDC's BU-64863T8 Total-ACE with a 1553 protocol interface layer, integrated memory, dual transceivers, and transformers, all encapsulated in a plastic BGA package.

The databus interface offers the Hardware Watchdog that mitigates inherent cyber security weaknesses within the MIL-STD-1553 protocol, and integrates cyber resiliency within the 1553 protocol layer.

This means that users can fortify their avionics networking against cyber security threats without compromising on performance. The embedded cyber-resilient features offer a secure and simplified method to add cyber mitigation to existing and new designs.

DDC engineers developed the Total-ACE CR avionics networking interface in coordination with the U.S. Air Force Cyber Resiliency Office for Weapon Systems (CROWS). For more information contact DDC online at
