By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- From Alexandria, Virginia, VerticalNews journalists report that a patent by the inventors Nguyen, Daniel (Auburn, WA); Shelton, Jason W. (Edgewood, WA); Mitchell, Timothy M. (Seattle, WA), filed on December 15, 2014, was published online on December 5, 2017.

The patent's assignee for patent number 9836990 is The Boeing Company (Chicago, IL).

News editors obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Modern aircraft often include a number of data processing systems, referred to generally as aircraft systems, used to perform various functions for the aircraft, such as monitoring flight sensors, controlling aircraft operations, communicating with other components within the aircraft, and the like. Aircraft systems interface with different types of aircraft networks to exchange digital information. Due to the structure of certain aircraft networks, cyber-attacks on the aircraft systems may be a problem. Because the amount of digital information required to operate and maintain an aircraft is steadily increasing, the importance of protecting aircraft systems from cyber-attacks is also increasing.

"While computer security may protect aircraft networks and aircraft systems from certain types of cyber-attacks, there is currently no way to simulate the effects on a pilot of the aircraft in response to a cyber-attack on one or more aircraft systems. Because the pilot is such an integral part of the operation and control of the aircraft, pilot reaction to a cyber-attack is important.

"Accordingly, those skilled in the art continue with research and development efforts in the field of cyber-attack security for aircraft systems."

As a supplement to the background information on this patent, VerticalNews correspondents also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "In one embodiment, the disclosed system for evaluating a cyber-attack on an aircraft may include a display associated with the aircraft, a sensor system configured to generate sensor data for a pilot, and a data processing system configured to: (1) generate simulation data, (2) generate a flight simulation from the simulation data, (3) simulate the cyber-attack on at least one aircraft system during the flight simulation, (4) generate virtual flight data during the flight simulation, and (5) present the sensor data and the virtual flight data.

"In another embodiment, the disclosed method for evaluating a cyber-attack on an aircraft may include the steps of: (1) generating a flight simulation, (2) simulating the cyber-attack on at least one aircraft system during the flight simulation, (3) generating sensor data for a pilot during the flight simulation, (4) generating virtual flight data during the flight simulation, and (5) assessing an impact of the cyber-attack on the aircraft.

"In yet another embodiment, the disclosed computer program product for evaluating a cyber-attack on an aircraft may include a non-transitory computer readable medium, and program code, stored on the non-transitory computer readable medium, for: (1) generating at least one virtual component, the virtual component representing a component of the aircraft, (2) generating simulation data, (3) generating a flight simulation from the simulation data, (4) simulating the cyber-attack on the virtual component during the flight simulation, (5) generating sensor data for a pilot during the flight simulation, (6) generating virtual flight data during the flight simulation, and (7) assessing an impact of the cyber-attack on the aircraft from at least one of the sensor data and the virtual flight data.

"Other embodiments of the disclosed systems and method will become apparent from the following detailed description, the accompanying drawings and the appended claims."
