U.S. Navy With American Defense Contractor Raytheon Will Install Linux on its Drones

Last year we came to know that a stealthy key-logger has hit the U.S. Drone logging pilots’ every keystroke as they remotely fly missions over Afghanistan and other war zones. Later Iran took responsibility of that cyber attack. So keeping those attack in mind now U.S. govt is enhancing more security, as per resources U.S. Navy has signed a reported $28 million deal with major American defense contractor Raytheon to install the Linux operating system on its vertical take off and landing drones. The U.S. Navy’s contract with Raytheon will call for a Linux transition on the tactical control system software of the MQ-8B Fire Scout. The Navy’s MQ-8B Fire Scout has already been deployed in the Caribbean to detect illegal drug shipments. The Navy reportedly has plans of duplicating the Fire Scout to a fleet of around 168 drones. The Navy also said that the drones has also be fitted with 70mm rockets for special missions.
