Autonomous Ships And Cyber Security

Digital transformation is one of the most important challenges facing forces today. Only through the experimentation of new and disruptive technologies will maritime forces be able to stay ahead and maintain operational advantage. Unmanned surface ships are becoming more independent and capable of accomplishing sophisticated missions. 

Britain's Royal Navy and the University of Plymouth, are now working together on research on the future of marine autonomy.

The partnership will see world-leading academics, in fields including autonomous marine vessels and maritime cyber security, working closely with navy personnel on a range of innovative projects. This includes the 2018 Project Hecla, which aims to optimise the UK Navy’s ability to collect and exploit hydrographic and ocean-graphic information.

Plymouth University will work with the project team on ways to enhance its feeding back of vital survey information to the UK Hydrographic Office and the RN’s highly skilled sailors.They will also look at harnessing the capabilities of the University’s unique and recently opened £3.2 million Cyber-SHIP Lab, which aims to secure maritime operations through cyber resilience research, tools, and training. 

The Lab is hardware-based, configurable research, software development, and training platform designed to enhance understanding of maritime systems’ cyber vulnerabilities.

The partnership was formally launched during a visit to the University by Rear Admiral Andrew Burns CB, OBE, Director Develop of Navy Command, and other senior navy personnel. The University of Plymouth was recently named the leading university in the world for marine research and teaching and this is enhanced by several significant partnerships with international marine and maritime organisations.
