Lockheed Martin Opens Wireless Cyber Security Lab

Lockheed Martin has opened a new Wireless Cyber Security Center, one of only a handful of technology labs capable of testing wireless communications systems in a classified environment. The lab allows defense and intelligence agencies to test and evaluate wireless systems like 802.11 Wi-Fi or broadband satellite links on a Top Secret / Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI) network.

Lockheed Martin said its Wireless Cyber Security Center covers a range of technologies, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 802.16 WiMAX, cell phones, and Ku and C-band satellite communications. A sealed and re-enforced test chamber ensures that signals from these systems stay within the confines of the lab, allowing for testing with classified systems.http://www.lockheedmartin.com
