We are Regulus,
an autonomous systems defense company.
Regulus is the first company dealing with sensor security, enabling uninterrupted, continuous operation under malicious attacks or accidental interference to sensors. From GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) to LiDAR and Radar, sensors are critical components across a wide range of applications and industries, while attacks against them are a growing concern across multiple industries.
Unlike traditional cyber approach, Regulus deals with direct sensor based attacks, and not internet-based attacks:
Spoofing is a smart attack on the sensor’s receivers, allowing an attacker to pose as a legitimate signal, enabling him to manipulate and deceive the target.
Jamming is a denial of service attack, causing the sensor to fail in providing any inputs and rendering it ‘blind’.
Our first technology ready to pilot is the Pyramid GNSS (GPS, BeiDou, GLONASS, Galileo and other constellations).
Regulus is researching LiDAR and Radar security, with prototypes planned for 2020.
Led by a team of entrepreneurs that boast extensive knowledge in creating cyber security solutions for the military, homeland security and commercial projects, Regulus expertise gained in the defense industry brings cutting-edge military grade protection technology to the civilian realm, and into the emerging markets of both manned and autonomous vehicle security.
Founded in 2016, Regulus is based in Israel and backed by investors Sierra Ventures, Canaan Partners Israel, the Technion, and F2 Capital. Regulus Cyber is an alumnus of the prestigious “Drive” and “The Junction” accelerators in Israel.
The Pyramid™ sensor protection suite of products was created to provide peace of mind and minimize risks in an ever-evolving threat and interference environment. The Regulus Pyramid suite won many awards including AUVSI Excellence, Edison Award for Transportation, Sengjing Global Innovation Award and Combating Terrorism Technology Challenge.
The GNSS Cybersecurity Opportunity
- GNSS receivers are a $100B market, growing to over $170B by 2022*
- GNSS chips are an $18B market, growing to $35B by 2025**
- 8 Billion GNSS devices expected worldwide by 2020, from 5.6B in 2014*
- Automotive accounts for 50% of the market in revenue*
- Autonomous driving requires highly accurate position, navigation & time in all scenarios.
- It’s a requirement that no individual technology can provide on its own.
- GNSS is a key element of sensor fusion, representing the main element
