BAE Systems to deliver and manage secure US military networks

12th August 2020 - 16:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has awarded BAE Systems a five-year, $85 million contract to continue to develop, deploy, modernise, and maintain cross-domain solutions that allow for secure transfer of sensitive information between government networks.

Work on the contract will enable the secure exchange of data — including streaming video, images and audio — to enhance mission collaboration, BAE Systems noted in a 12 August statement.

The company will also provide research, development, and evaluation of new technologies, including the integration of innovative AI and machine learning capabilities.

‘As the military cyberspace battlefield expands, we understand how critical it is that secure, innovative intelligence solutions are available to warfighting commands and combat support agencies to communicate safety and effectively,’ said Pete Trainer, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Air Force Solutions business.

He added: ‘Our services will provide end-users access to virtual information and analysis faster, allowing them to make informed decisions quickly.’
