Military aircraft engine maker Rolls-Royce has teamed up with Carnegie Mellon University and Purdue University to examine the potential of artificial intelligence technology to detect cybersecurity risks to propulsion and power systems.
The partnership seeks to create AI-based intrusion detection approaches for embedded hardware in products such as aerospace engines as part of the Rolls-Royce Cybersecurity Technology Research Network, the company said Thursday.
Rolls-Royce committed to funding up to three projects with each university partner annually.
Tom Bell, chairman and CEO of Rolls-Royce's North American arm, said the company formed the research network as part of efforts to increase product and customer resilience against cyber threats.
