EW Europe 2019: US Army selects cyber EW support
Perspecta has been selected to provide cyber electronic warfare support to the US Army Program Executive Office for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare, and Sensors (PEO IEW&S) on the R4 programme.
R4 is a ten-year ID/IQ multiple-award contract with a maximum ceiling value of $982 million.
Under the programme, Perspecta will develop and deploy a comprehensive suite of non-kinetic cyber electronic warfare capabilities in support of the US Army's cyber-electromagnetic activities (CEMA) mission.
Additionally, the company will integrate deep SIGINT, wireless, and big data expertise into the services and solutions it plans to deliver to the army.
‘It is no question that in order for our Armed Forces to maintain their dominance, they need to ensure they are providing the strongest, most advanced cyber capabilities to its warfighters,’ said Mac Curtis, president and CEO at Perspecta.
‘As a leader in cyberspace operations and innovative cyber research and development, we look forward to working closely with our army customer to strengthen their position in the cyber battlespace.’
CEMA is a critical component of the US Army's multi-domain warfare strategy. Perspecta will leverage its unique combination of developmental, operational and research capabilities, along with its team of innovative partner companies, to deliver solutions that will enable the Army to dominate the modern battlefield.
Perspecta currently holds prime positions on cyberspace operations support programmes at both the US Army Cyber Command and USCYBERCOM and is one of the leading cyber research and development partners supporting the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
In April 2019 the company was awarded a $5.7 million contract modification for continued work on the DARPA Edge-Directed Cyber Technologies for Reliable Mission Communication (EdgeCT) programme.
As a performer on the EdgeCT programme, Perspecta Labs developed an edge-based system that provides real-time service restoration and situational awareness to defend critical network services against a wide range of network disruptions and cyber-attacks; known as Distributed Enclave Defense Using Configurable Edges or DEDUCE.
The company has also worked with the US Air Force and was awarded the Enterprise Logging Phase 2 (EL2) contract in March 2019. he single award contract, awarded under USAF Network-Centric Solutions-2 (NETCENTS-2) NetOps, represents new work for the company and has a one-year base and four, one-year options, with a maximum ceiling value of $71 million.
