WHITE PAPER Bringing commercial technologies to defense in the age of AI mrcy.com 6 To safeguard controlled unclassified information such as detailed program requirements and underlying AI hardware designs, suppliers must integrate security features and maintain a cybersecure infrastructure compliant to Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 252.204-7012 and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication (NIST SP) 800-171A. MAINTAINING MODEL AND DATA INTEGRITY Innovative AI technologies can create tactical advantages, but only if kept secure. Neural networks must be protected against reverse engineering to gain access to controlled or classified data such as government assets, military strategies, personnel and other military or intelligence data. Technology housing this information could be lost, altered or captured in the field. Mercury 's BuiltSECURE™ systems security engineering (SSE) technologies build in proven system-wide security. BuiltSECURE technologies, including secure boot, secure processing and physical protection, offer reverse-engineering protection and cyber resiliency. Collectively, this layered approach to security safeguards critical intellectual property (IP) against adversarial threats and helps maintain data integrity. Security threats are constantly evolving. By leveraging a layered approach to threat mitigation with modular, scalable security architectures, program risk may be reduced. ENABLING THE FUTURE AGE OF MILITARY AI There is no doubt that AI will enhance capabilities, operations and decision-making on the battlefield. Mercury Systems is working closely with Intel to engineer a full range of scalable AI-ready systems that are rugged, reliable, compact and secure. Modular and open hardware with framework-optimized commercial technology stacks keep pace with evolving workload requirements and streamline development. Advanced engineering, testing and pre-certification ensure small, rugged form factors operate reliably and safely in space-constrained mobile platforms. Built-in secure processing safeguards confidential training data and enhances cyber security. Defense technology providers must work closely with the DoD and key commercial technology leaders to tactfully craft hardware that accelerates AI advancement and ensures mission success. Mercur y HDS6605 OpenVPX server blades feature a 90%+ reduction in footprint, optional BuiltSECURE technologies and MOTS+ extreme environmental protection. Mercur y 's RES Trust servers with BuiltSECURE technologies feature U.S. made motherboards designed and manufactured in Mercur y 's DMEA-accredited, IPC-1791 secure facilities.
