9 Long distance rangefinder family Noptel launches Interesting part of Noptel laser rangefinder technologies are the middle range and long range laser rangefinders. These small size and light weight modules are provided for system integrators and manufacturers globally. The rangefinders exploit laser pulse flight time measurement technology and advanced signal processing techniques, which allow measurement of distances to poorly reflecting targets. While the short range laser rangefinder technology allows measurement with every pulse and at high measuring rate, the long range rangefinders exploit a special cumulative measurement method. By using this cumulative measurement method Noptel can exploit standard diode lasers and eye safe technology, yet reaching distance to several kilometres and at good measuring rate. Furthermore, the used technology allows competitive pricing and very small size of the units. Noptel started to use the cumulative measurement technology in rangefinders in a project with a Belgian company FN Herstal, with whom Noptel developed a state-ofthe-art multi-technology fire control unit FCU. Today FN Herstal is the main shareholder of Noptel. Noptel supplies the FCU units to FN Herstal on frequent basis. Technology The technology developed for the FCU has later been exploited in the Noptel LRF modules. The family of LRF modules comprises open and closed units, from small 50 gram unit up to 500g high performance unit. Typical measurement range for the smallest units is 1-3 km and for the high performance units 5-10 km. Moreover, as special units Noptel offers modules for km distances. Applications Typical applications for these modules are systems for thermal imaging, forward observation, surveillance, weapon sights, targeting, fire control and reconnaissance. The modules have been designed to operate as an OEM part of the complete system and controlled by the master unit. The modular structure of the modules allows mechanical restructuring of the unit, when necessary. That is especially important, when the available space in the master unit is limited. Noptel will present the latest LRF technology at the Eurosatory exhibition in Paris June long distance rangefinder family Noptel laser rangefinder family has enlarged with new series of long distance rangefinder modules. The small size open modules have woken huge interest among system integrators since the start of the launch. Several system integrators have adopted the new rangefinders into their new projects and products and many negotiations are actively ongoing. The family of LRF modules comprises open and closed units, from small 50 gram unit up to 500g high performance unit. 16 AFDA NEWS AFDA NEWS 17

10 Proactive cybersecurity Discover zero-day vulnerabilities proactively: Don't leave backdoors into critical network The Stuxnet demonstrated that critical infrastructure networks are no longer protected by isolation. They face the same threats as ICT networks, but the risks are far greater: a cyberattack against a critical infrastructure network can result in cascading failures across critical infrastructure and the industries it supports. Yet, many critical infrastructure operators have done little or nothing to improve the cybersecurity of their facilities. Given the risks, governments cannot wait for the private sector to take initiative. They need to make cybersecurity a national security priority and work together with the private sector to prepare for cyberattacks. The biggest cybersecurity threats are the unknown, zero-day vulnerabilities still remaining in the code. ner or using vulnerability scanning to test software products before release. Good cyber-hygiene also covers the use of signature-based security defenses, such IPS/IDS solutions, vulnerability scanners and firewalls. They are fairly efficient in defending against attacks exploiting known vulnerabilities. However, they can only detect pieces of malware, for which an identifier, known as a signature, already exists and has been deployed. Attacks exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities can completely bypass these defenses. Increased exposure Critical infrastructure networks are increasingly using Internet protocols and communicate with external resources, sometimes over the public Internet. The transition into Internet Protocol (IP) based networks helps reduce costs and improve efficiency, but it also exposes these previously isolated networks to external attacks. Most systems and protocols used in critical infrastructure networks were developed for closed networks with trusted de vices and no connection to the outside world. They contain very little security features, and more worryingly, they have never been hardened meaning there are plenty of exploitable vulnerabilities in these networks. Vulnerabilities enable attacks In all types of cyberattacks, the initial access into a system is enabled by a vulnerability in the system. These are simply errors made during development. Software is written by humans, thus there will always be mistakes. Ideally, they should also be fixed during development, because after deployment the errors become exploitable vulnerabilities. Security researchers, security companies and hackers, discover some of these. If they report their findings, software developers can create patches for the found vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities are now known vulnerabilities. The biggest threat: Zero-days The biggest cybersecurity threats are the unknown, zero-day vulnerabilities still remaining in the code. Advanced attacks, like Stuxnet, exploit multiple zero-day vulnerabilities making them extremely difficult to defend against. However, even one single zero-day vulnerability can have a huge impact, as the Heartbleed bug demonstrated. The vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL library, used to protect the communication of sensitive information, potentially gave attackers access to 66% of sensitive information shared online. Reducing the risk The risk of cyberattacks can be reduced considerably by implementing basic cyberhygiene measures, such as deploying patches in a timely man- Catching the next Heartbleed bug Fuzzing is a security testing technique that can find previously unknown, zero-day vulnerabilities by triggering them with unexpected inputs. By using fuzzing to test their systems, organizations can find and fix vulnerabilities before the attackers have a chance to exploit them. Fuzzing improves the security and robustness of networks making it significantly harder for the bad actors to devise an attack. The less vulnerabilities there are in the system, the harder it is to find a vulnerability to exploit. Detecting attacks earlier The longer attacks stay undetected the more damage they can cause. Good cyberthreat awareness is key to establishing systematic and efficient processes for responding to cyber incidents. Organizations can improve their situation awareness by automating information collection, processing and reporting and engaging in timely information sharing with their cybersecurity partners. Proactive cybersecurity strategy Proactive defense is all about improving national cyberdefense capabilities, i.e., a nation's ability to prevent and detect cyberattacks. Cyberattacks can never be fully avoided, but with the correct cybersecurity strategies the risk of attacks can be reduced con- siderably. However, proactive cyberdefense is not just implementing new technologies; it is improving internal processes and building strong partnerships. Timely information sharing is an important part of proactive cyberdefense, because it promotes transparency thus strengthening partnerships. Transparency also ensures that the efforts we make to secure cyberspace do not compromise the openness of the Internet, which is the very source of its success.

11 Re-thinking Fire Protection Today s armoured vehicles operate in environments where they face severe fire threats. If the vehicle is not protected, a fire can destroy it and injure or even kill the crew, causing terrible human tragedies and huge economic losses. Mikro-Pulssi Re-thinking Fire Protection The crew and the vehicle need to be protected against all fire threats. The fires can be caused by IEDs, fuel explosions, penetrating hits, electrical malfunctions, oil leakages etc. At the same time when additional protection is needed, the pressure for cost savings is increasing. An effective fire protection system may cost less than one per cent of the vehicle s total purchasing cost, and offers protection for the vehicle s whole life-cycle. ExAct Titan The factor between life and death ExAct Titan automatically detects fuel explosions and armour penetrations with flame detectors in three milliseconds and suppresses these in less than 120 milliseconds. ExAct Titan fire protection system can save lives. Mikro-Pulssi Oy is an independent, Finnish company operating in the fire protection industry. Mikro-Pulssi Oy designs and manufactures automatic fire alarm and fire extinguishing systems for military, public and private sector clients. The solution for the fire protection of armoured vehicles is the ExAct Titan fire protection system. It provides effective protection against all fire threats. ExAct Titan automatically detects fuel explosions and armour penetrations with flame detectors in three milliseconds and suppresses these in less than 120 milliseconds. The system also detects and extinguishes slow-growth fires with flame detectors or line heat detectors in a few seconds. By acting so quickly, the system prevents pressure build-up and temperature rise inside the vehicle. By detecting and extinguishing a fire in its early stages, it is possible to completely avoid or minimize the consequences that a fire might have. These include personal injuries, damage to equipment and systems, and costly vehicle downtime. A fire protection system can save the lives of the crew. Cost-effectiveness and flexibility Modular system structure offers cost savings through logistics, maintenance, training etc. ExAct Titan is a system that protects the vehicle through its whole life-cycle. If the vehicle is updated or its tasks change, ExAct Titan system can be adapted to these new roles. ExAct Titan fire protection system protects up to four different compartments. In most cases there are 2-3 different compartments: engine compartment, crew compartment and possibly a separate compartment for electrical apparatus. ExAct Titan uses human and eco-friendly fire extinguishing agents enabling the crew to stay in the vehicle when the extinguishant is released. 20 AFDA NEWS AFDA NEWS 21
