Chronos partner Microchip releases major update to BlueSky GNSS Firewall

Chronos partner, Microchip Technology Inc. has released a major software update for its BlueSky™ GNSS Firewall product, providing a higher level of resiliency against GPS vulnerabilities for systems dependent on GPS / GNSS signal reception.

BlueSky™GNSS Firewall Software Release 2.0 performs real-time analysis to detect jamming and spoofing for protecting reception of the GPS / GNSS signal and hardening response and recovery to avoid signal disruption. It includes charting and advanced threshold settings of GNSS observables such as satellites-in-view, carrier-to-noise, position dispersion, phase time deviation and radio frequency (RF) power level to simplify system turn-up and deployment.

Release 2.0 includes improvements developed by Microchip as a result of participation in an industry live-sky testing event hosted by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate. Participation in the DHS-hosted GPS Testing for Critical Infrastructure (GET-CI) events, with scenarios including spoofed signals, has helped Microchip identify new solutions to prevent signal disruptions and as a result of the 2019 live-sky testing and other input, Microchip developed the BlueSky™ GNSS Firewall Software Release 2.0 to address operators’ evolving requirements.

Microchip is a leader in frequency and time systems and continuously innovates GPS / GNSS signal reception security technologies for commercial and military operators similar to how network firewalls protect against virus threats. Updates are essential to defend against rapidly-evolving GNSS disruptions and enable critical infrastructure operators to avoid interruptions of service.

BlueSky™ GNSS Firewall Software Release 2.0 is provided as part of a subscription service and is installed on the BlueSky™ GNSS Firewall device. When connected to Microchip’s TimePictra management software, critical infrastructure operators also can monitor and analyse GNSS signals in cities, across geographic regions, throughout a country and even globally.
