We are working with Raytheon Canada Limited (RCL) to establish an Alberta-based cyber solutions centre with state-of-the-art cyber range capabilities focused on researching, assessing, and validating the security and resilience of a wide range of technologies, infrastructures, and systems. We will leverage Raytheon’s Cyber Operations, Development, and Evaluation (CODE™) solutions centres and capabilities from Raytheon Canada Limited in Calgary with a potential for further collaborations with other locations in the US and UK.

Over the last few years, more and more Information Technology (IT) has been incorporated into Operational Technology (OT). An obvious by-product of this convergence is the introduction of cyber threats heretofore the exclusive domain of IT systems now targeting OT. Significant steps have been taken to protect OT from such threats, but as the convergence continues, risks to OT will continue to increase. We will generate innovative methods and commercialize products to mitigate these risks and protect municipal, provincial, and national critical infrastructures.
