Trust Automation Inc., a leading supplier of automation technology for defense and industrial applications, has announced it will offer a novel new cybersecurity solution for industrial control systems (ICS). Working through the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, Trust has obtained an exclusive license to the Autonomic Intelligent Cyber Sensor (AICS) technology developed by Idaho National Laboratories. AICS brings autonomous, real-time cybersecurity measures to the legacy ICS networks that still control much of the United States’ critical energy, water and transportation infrastructure. “AICS is a key enabling technology in the protection of aging, yet still critical, infrastructure that wasn’t designed to withstand cyberattacks,” says Trust Automation CEO and CTO, Ty Safreno. At its core, AICS technology employs autonomic computing techniques and a service-oriented architecture to discover ICS network entity information, deploy deceptive virtual hosts and identify anomalous network traffic with high accuracy. AICS is compatible with SerialTap™, a patented sensor that passively monitors the serial communications employed by most legacy ICS networks. The exclusive license enables Trust Automation to use AICS to upgrade the cyber defenses of vulnerable legacy critical infrastructure systems—including natural gas distribution, water distribution and management, electrical grid systems and transportation. The move builds on Trust Automation’s extensive experience with control and power-management systems for semiconductor, defense and green technology applications.

Trust Automation Receives Full-Rate Production Contract from Lockheed Martin to Provide Motion Control System for Q-53 Radar Production
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., July 21, 2017 — Trust Automation, Inc. has been awarded the full-rate production contract from Lockheed Martin for the motion control systems on the AN/TPQ-53 (Q-53) Counterfire Target Acquisition Radar (CTAR). Trust Automation developed the Q-53’s entire motion control system, which levels the vehicle, elevates the radar platform and positions the radar. Based on a solid-state phased array, the Q-53 detects, classifies, tracks and determines the location of enemy indirect fire in either 360 or 90 degree modes. Compared to earlier generation CTAR systems, the Q-53 provides enhanced performance—including greater mobility, increased reliability, lower life-cycle cost and reduced crew size. The Q-53’s active electronically scanned array (AESA) provides the foundation for multi-mission capabilities. The Q-53 has demonstrated the ability to identify and track (UAS), showing the capacity to incorporate air surveillance simultaneously with counter target acquisition in a single sensor. “We’re proud of the field-proven performance and our contribution to this groundbreaking radar system and pleased to join Lockheed Martin in its efforts to continually improve the protection of our soldiers,” said Craig Vonilten, Vice President of Business Development for Trust Automation. Trust Automation offers fully engineered system solutions and United States-based manufacturing for custom motor and motion control requirements to meet the specialized needs of our armed forces and allies. Recent contracts include systems for the TPS-77 Multi Role Radars and the Multi-Mission Launcher (MML) for the U.S. Army. About Trust Automation Trust Automation designs, develops and manufactures custom and standard automation systems for the defense, semiconductor, industrial automation, green tech and medical industries. Trust’s product line includes linear and digital drives, high performance servo motors, standalone motion controllers, custom assemblies, engineering services and custom battery management systems.
