IronClad Secure Flight Controller

A Platform-Agnostic, Open-Architecture, Cybersecure UAS Flight Controller

The American-made, cybersecure IronClad SFC provides cutting-edge avionics sensors and computing capabilities coupled with reliable, customized packages of open-source autopilot software.

American-Made, US Government-Vetted:

  • Designed and manufactured by a Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned Small Business located in Columbus, OH

  • Developed and vetted in conjunction with the US Department of Homeland Security and US Department of Defense

  • NDAA 2020 Section 848 Compliant

  • Passed multiple third-party cybersecurity assessments

Open But Secure:

  • Runs non-proprietary, open-source autopilot and communication software with added security enhancements

  • Engineered from the ground-up with hardware and software-based cybersecurity features

  • Security features include embedded hardware security, anti-tamper, secure boot, and encrypted file systems, onboard encryption of control and telemetry streams

More Than Just an Autopilot:

  • Deeply integrated edge-computing capability for combined flight control, video processing and artificial intelligence/computer vision applications

  • Compatible with wide variety of third-party radio solutions

  • Integrated hardware-in-the-loop simulation capability for risk-reduced flight control refinement and payload development testing

Example of Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation on a newly integrated UAS platform

THE CLAIM:

Most other UAS flight controllers/autopilots are advertised as "plug-and-play" and "modular", making it seems as if you can fly (and integrate payloads) with minimal effort

THE REALITY:

Every new platform, payload and mission application requires significant engineering, integration and testing efforts

OUR DIFFERENCE:

Asymmetric's team of US-based, security-cleared engineers built the IronClad SFC from the ground up and can help you quickly configure your UAS so it is secure, reliable and on the cutting-edge

The Asymmetric and IronClad Difference:

IronClad SFC has been successfully integrated on multiple US Government-operated and commercial UAS platforms -
