Study, design and analyse on a risk-based approach a security system relying on multiple technologies for the protection of space control ground stations against physical and cyber attacks and for intelligent reconfiguration of the ground station network in the case that one or more nodes fail. The main functional blocks of the SCOUT architecture are:
- MCU (Main Control Unit): this subsystem is devoted to the management, the display, and the identification of the actions to be performed when an attack is identified; in some cases the MCU can autonomously implement the identified reactions;
- Risk Assessment Unit: this subsystem is in charge of identifying the level of risk associated with the potential threats (cyber and physical ones);
- SENSNET: is a scalable multi-sensors network devoted to the protection of the space ground based station against physical attacks;
- CYBERSENS: is a distributed telecommunication network sensing system devoted to the protection/detection of the space ground based station against cyber attacks;
RECOVER: is a network management system devoted to the reconfiguration of the space control ground station network.
