Regulus Cyber, a Haifa, Israel-based provider of solutions to ensure security & mission reliability for autonomous cars & trucks, robots, and drones, raised $6.3m in Seed and Series A funding.
Backers included Sierra Ventures, Canaan Partners Israel, the Technion and F2 Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations.
Led by Yonatan Zur, CEO, and Yoav Zangvil, CTO, Regulus Pyramid GPS SP (GPS Spoofing Protection) for autonomous vehicles and drones is a standalone module that integrates with any vehicle. It is designed to protect the GPS system from spoofing attacks by differentiating between reliable GPS signals coming from satellites versus attack signals coming from illegitimate sources. The Pyramid GPS SP is a small module (under 50 grams, 2 ounces).
The company also developed the Pyramid CSM (Communication & Security Manager) to guard drones from hacking and mission interference. Regulus Pyramid CSM is an external plug-and-play solution that protects drones from hackers via encryption and authenticity, ensures the safety of the communication and data being transmitted, and provides a visual heat map of the drone’s quality of communication so that remote pilots can have a comprehensive view of each drone’s flight path to assist in planning of future missions.
