US orders new secure intelligence-sharing network
BAE Systems will work to enhance intelligence sharing capabilities for the US Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) under a five-year $49 million contract announced on 5 January.
The contract will see the company develop, deploy, and maintain cross domain solutions for safeguarding the sharing of sensitive information between government networks.
The technologies developed will enable the secure exchange of messages, images, and streaming video and audio data to enhance mission collaboration. BAE Systems will also work closely with AFRL to research and develop dynamic new tools to address future agency needs and bridge technology gaps.
DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence and Security sector, said: ‘We’re helping our customers innovate advanced cross domain technologies to enhance virtualisation, boost data processing, and support the integration of machine learning solutions.’
