CenturionCDS - Tactical Cross Domain Solution

Bringing Safe, Secure Information Sharing to the Tactical Edge

CenturionCDS™ is the next generation, high performance, ultra small tactical cross domain solution (CDS). It enables secure data transfer to tactical warfighters without adding to the space, weight or power burden of dismounted soldiers. CenturionCDS is ideally suited for deployment with dismounted soldiers, on small UAV platforms or as an embedded subsystem within tactical communications or computer equipment.

  • Ultra Low SWaP
  • Robust Security Architecture
  • 100% Rule Set Compatible with TACDS

General Dynamics acquired Advatech Pacific’s tactical cross domain products and technology in April 2017.

Features

CenturionCDS works by executing programmable rule sets that filter information (messages), allowing individual messages or data fields within them to be selectively passed, blocked, or changed. This method ensures data security on both networks and automates the need for time consuming “man in the middle” screening of message exchanges.

  • Fully capable of simultaneously operating on a variety of tactical data formats including high definition full motion video, XML and binary message formats
  • High bandwidth, low latency performance unmatched by any other small SWaP tactical CDS
  • Ruggedized for soldier worn, unmanned vehicle systems (UVS) and other embedded applications
  • Tamper resistant
  • Highly reliable, low maintenance impact
  • Custom packaging for embedded applications available with special orders
  • Utilizes the same security architecture as NSA certified TACDS
  • Fully backward compatible with TACDS firmware, software, rule sets and audit logs

Security Architecture Features

  • Hardware enforced domain separation
  • FIPS 140-2 Level 4 anti-tamper with automatic device zeroization built-in
  • Encrypted storage of rule sets & audit logs
  • Secure boot and trusted platform verification upon power up
  • Authenticated, role-based device management

Ease of Use

  • Many message formats supported through pluggable filter component interface
  • User programmable rule sets
  • Autonomous, bi-directional message filtering
  • No user interaction required for normal operation

Applications

Our CenturionCDS cross domain solution technology supports a wide variety of tactical deployments and systems. CenturionCDS can process numerous mission-enabling tactical data and message formats to provide instant, secure access to real-time information for all warfighters on the battlefield. With its broad capabilities, the CenturionCDS is well suited for the diverse applications on the modern battlefield, including:

General Dynamics Mission Payloads - Information from Space to the Warfighter

Nov, 17 2017
Our relationship with space has changed dramatically since the first words were heard from the Moon in 1969. Space above Earth is now a complex array of more than 2,200 satellites, not including space debris made up of spent rocket boosters, dead satellites and a wrench or two from space walks and repairs. And, more satellites, large and small, are launching all the time.
