Short Wave critical Infrastructure Network based on new Generation of high survival radio communication system

Short Wave critical Infrastructure Network based on new Generation of high survival radio communication system

The aim of this project is to study and realize a High survival HF radio network (data/voice) as countermeasure against both the internet network and satellite communications failure caused by terrorist attack or by natural disaster.
The system is conceived in order to:

  1. Evaluate which level of threat is present on the network to increase the security awareness of ECIs (electric power distribution and production infrastructure, safety and defence organization, water distribution agency, airports);
  2. Start a procedure able to activate the HF radio network in order to improve information management with regard to ECIs;
  3. Establish the minimum flux of information to be transferred by means of HF network in order to increase ECIs protection exploiting both the most advanced techniques of ICT and HF network communication.

The innovation of this project is to use HF consolidated technology, making use of COTS and reliable hardware and software solutions, for prevention and management of issues related to potential cyber-attacks.
