Cybernet is transitioning its Automated Data Cleanser (ADC) at Robins AFB. The ADC performs four years of work in one day for multiple aircraft platforms, saving $3M annually based on anticipated reductions in unscheduled maintenance. The ADC technology frees subject matter experts to discover bad entries sooner and enhances fleet analysis for System Program Offices. This effort will mature and transition the ADC to the Air Force and ensure maintainability of the ADC application.
At a time when cybersecurity is one of the hottest topics in business discussions, particularly within government, Cybernet’s Orlando-based Cybersecurity Division announced that it will once again participate in the world’s largest modeling, simulation and training conference, Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in Orlando, Florida.
“When you consider that estimates project cybercrime damage costs to reach $6 trillion annually by 2021, we know that our products and services will be the difference for our customers, and protecting their assets is what we do best,” said Andrew Maxon, vice president, Cybersecurity and Training Systems. “The challenge that we’re finding is that many of our partners and customers who support government contracts either aren’t familiar with the newest level of cyber compliance because perhaps they don’t have internal cybersecurity experts, or that they just haven’t found the “right time” to make the upgrades. Either way, it’s a very precarious place to be.”
Maxon said their most popular products, Security Manager and Security Advisor, are helping businesses make those adjustments and helping them keep up with the day-to-day management necessary to ensure the most protection from any hacks or malware.
“Cybernet has always been focused on making an impact worldwide in areas of importance: health, productivity and security,” Maxon said. “The fact that the world’s internet users are already numbered at 3.8 billion in 2017, and that some projections say that 40% of manufacturing security professionals do not have a formal security strategy, the focus on security and providing useful, reliable and affordable cybersecurity protection is more important than ever.”
Cybernet System Corporation is showcasing their contribution in transforming the defense industry through technological innovation at the Michigan: The Arsenal of Innovation Congressional Breakfast in Washington, D.C. on November 1, 2017, from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM. During this forum on Michigan's leadership in innovation, Dr. Charles J. Cohen, Cybernet's Chief Technology Officer, will be presenting their technology to Members of the Michigan Congressional Delegation, other Michigan high tech, innovative defense companies, and the Michigan Defense Center.

Cybernet is creating a prototype autonomous ATLAS-II forklift by integrating their existing Automated Material Handling Technology (AMHT) appliqué kit into an ATLAS-II forklift. We developed the AMHT technology in coordination with the U.S. Army and commercial forklift vendors to automate the functions of material handling equipment, such as forklifts, container handlers, and cargo movers. It has been successfully demonstrated on commercial warehouse style forklifts, tactical forklifts, rough terrain container handlers, and small transport vehicles.
This project is a National Advanced Mobility Consortium (NAMC) effort. The prototype autonomous ATLAS-II forklift will be tested through an incremental approach that includes verification of core behaviors inside our existing autonomous vehicle simulator, functional testing of base autonomous and semi-autonomous capabilities at Cybernet’s facilities, and full system testing demonstrating the ability to perform the required forklift operations in a relevant environment.
The system will support both semi-autonomous and autonomous operations. In semi-autonomous mode, an operator will be able to control the forklift with a remote control, with the autonomous forklift continuing to provide behavior support such as obstacle avoidance, pallet engagement, etc. In full autonomous mode, the forklift will perform all functions without human input. However, an operator will provide the forklift with missions to perform and can cease operation through wireless commands to the forklift.
