Objective

PROGRESS will focus on improving the security and resilience of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and its results will also be applicable to earth observation infrastructure and assets. At the start of the project a generic GNSS system will be designed and its associated augmentation system will be assessed with regards to vulnerability from selected attack threat risk scenarios. PROGRESS will focus on those threats that are likely to increase in the coming years, for instance new terrorism attacks from highly educated terrorists. The resulting prioritisation of threats and scenarios will be used as input to develop a prototype Security Management Solution (SMS). PROGRESS SMS will be a centralized solution able to automatically detect attacks with a built-in reconfiguration capability allowing to ensure the overall system Quality of Service. PROGRESS SMS will be composed of an Integrated Ground Station Security Monitoring System (IGSSMS) and a Security Control Centre (SCC). The IGSSMS will be an innovative monitoring solution for the detection of cyber attacks, Radiofrequency (RF) attacks and physical attacks. The Security Control Centre will analyse the impact of the reported attacks on the system performance and Quality of Service (QoS) and will propose mitigation strategies, including automatic system reconfiguration. The SMS will be developed with full consideration of present methods and measures for the security and resilience of complex interconnected space control ground station networks by present operators of Ground Mission segments (GMS) and Ground Control systems (GCS). The consortium includes the operator the Galileo Control Centre in Oberpfaffenhofen, the European leader for satellite systems, a manufacturer and world distributor of security solutions, leading applied research institutes, specialised SMEs and a research institution specialised both in security and social aspects.
