22 May 2014: Guest briefing at CDE Innovation Network - SQR Systems

  1. 1. SQR Systems CDE Open Call Dr. Nithin Thomas CEO Nithin.thomas@sqrsystems.com
  2. 2. The proposal High bandwidth connections Low bandwidth connections Locks down the data, preventing it from being modified High bandwidth connections Low bandwidth connections Allows the data to be optimised in encrypted form Decrypted data exposed to cyberattack Software to securely transmit high quality video data in encrypted form over disadvantaged networks Traditional encryption SQR encryption Every user gets the best possible video for their link but the network never generates any decrypted content
  3. 3. The outcome Encryption Technology Compression Technology Compliant with Standards Open Architecture & Compatible Data kept secure throughout delivery process, removing opportunity for cyber-attack. Optimal use of bandwidth to ensure best user experience. Easy integration with other software & hardware (inclusive of commercial platforms) Maximum interoperability with other systems C O M B I N E D COMMERCIAL IN CONFIDENCE
  4. 4. Applications • C4ISR • Tactical comms • Dismounted soldier • Protection of CNI • Satcoms
  5. 5. The experience • Funding to develop technology from an early level of maturity • Fully funded projects are valuable for start-ups • Ownership of IP is a favourable term that allows companies to exploit the technology • Working at unclassified level allows maximum flexibility for deploying the technology in commercial applications • External Investment still required to sustain cash flow due to milestone payments • Follow on funding may not come through at the right time • Exploitation path not always clear
  6. 6. The outcomes Winner of the Shell Innovation Award 2012 Winner of the Global Security Challenge 2013 Winner of Shell LiveWire Grand Ideas 2011 Winner of Cambridge Wireless Discovering Startups 2013 Finalist of SmartUK 2014  Technology  Unique integrated encryption & compression software  Secure and unbroken wireless communication even during poor connectivity  Open architecture enabling easy integration with other software & hardware.  Verticals  Defence & Aerospace (D&A)  Technology Media Telecom (TMT)  A broad range including Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) & Healthcare  Customers  UK and US government agencies  Global cyber security solutions providers  Private sector clients  Team  R&D focused – 4 x PhDs  Track record of delivering projects to performance, time and cost Involved in research programmes with the UK and US governments for military and commercial applications Recognised by the Royal Society (the pre- eminent scientific body in the UK) in its work on cyber security research (to be published summer 2014)
