Raytheon to work on DARPA’s Plan X programme

6th February 2014 - 16:10 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


DARPA has awarded a contract to Raytheon to conduct research and development that will enable the US Department of Defense (DoD) to predictably and rapidly scale and execute cyber operations with accurate assessable results.

Raytheon announced its reception of a $9.8 million contract from DARPA for the work on 6 February.

The Plan X programme aims to help US government agencies plan, execute and assess cyber network operations; and develop platforms for the DoD to deal with cyber warfare in a manner similar to kinetic warfare.

Jack Harrington, vice president, Cybersecurity and Special Missions within Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services, said: ‘When supporting our customers' missions, we can help assess the results of launching missiles or any weapons in other domains--land, air, sea or space. Raytheon is working to provide the same mission confidence to the cyber domain through our work with DARPA's Plan X.’
