Summary: 
This paper aims to propose a Fallback Control System isolated from cyber-attacks against networked control systems. The fallback control system implements maintaining functionality after an incident. Since cyber-attacks tamper with the communication contents of the networked control systems, the fallback control system is installed in a control target side. The fallback control system detects the incident without the communication contents on field network. This system detects an incident based on a bilinear observer and a switched Lyapunov function. When an incident is detected, normal operation is switched to fallback operation automatically. In this paper, a practical experiment with Ball-Sorter simulating a simple defective discriminator as a part of Factory Automation systems is shown. Assumed cyber-attacks against Ball-Sorter are Man In The Middle attack and Denial of Service attack.
