Unsettled Topics on Nondestructive Testing of Additively Manufactured Parts in the Mobility Industry

2020-09-30
EPR2020018
This SAE EDGE™ Research Report identifies key unsettled definitions of the role of smart assembly tools in the Industry 4.0 world. “Smart” refers to tools that are “specific, measurable, achievable, reasonable/realistic, and time bound.” Smart assembly tools are used in all industries, including automotive, aerospace, and space. These tools are employed for measuring, inspecting, gauging, drilling, and installing all existing fastening systems. The role of an assembly tool inside the Industry 4.0 environment is quite important as the smart, intelligent assembly tools have an enablement function. Smart assembly tools have a huge influence on Information and Communication Technology (ICT), assembly cost reduction, process control, and even the product and process quality. These four four domains—and their undefined nature—are the focus of this SAE EDGE™ Research Report.

Addressing configuration controls in an era of multiple security frameworks

2019-07-04
Sometimes mandatory, often voluntary, security frameworks are created to provide federal and commercial organizations with an effective roadmap for securing information technology (IT) systems. The goal is to reduce risk levels and prevent or mitigate cyberattacks. To accomplish this task, security frameworks typically provide a series of documented, agreed upon, and understood policies, procedures, and processes necessary to secure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information systems and data.

Nvidia partners with AdaCore to secure self-driving firmware

2019-02-14
As mobility software becomes increasingly complex and connected, so does the risk of human error and system safety. To combat this, New York-based software company AdaCore will work with Nvidia Corporation of Santa Clara, California to apply open-source Ada and SPARK programming languages for select software security firmware elements in highly-complex, safety-critical systems like Nvidia’s DRIVE AGX automated and autonomous vehicle solutions.

Automation streamlines accreditation to speed aerospace and defense technology deployment

2018-12-07
Automated software tools are eliminating weeks, if not months, from the Risk Management Framework (RMF) accreditation process by virtually eliminating the time of the initial hardening while also providing the required documentation. By doing so, technology integrators can significantly reduce the time to build, test, and deploy new technologies in Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG)-compliant environments.
