This presentation will highlight the challenges that aviation operations are facing today and describe a new UNSW Canberra research project on autonomous operations for a cyber-physical UAV Distributed Anomaly Detection system.  This research seeks to promote awareness of cyber security in autonomous aviation operations and related confidentiality-integrity-availability (CIA-triad) issues across the Australian Defence Force. In particular, it addresses the following question: How to identify malicious attacks through anomaly detection in ways that will make mission-critical systems resilient to cyber-attacks?
