Boeing has been awarded a $1.2 million contract by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome, N.Y., to study and demonstrate improved situational awareness, visualization, and response automation for networks during a cyber attack. Under the contract, Boeing will analyze network operations and develop procedures, processes, and tools that will enhance network command and control capabilities.
Steve Oswald, vice president and general manager of Boeing Intelligence and Security Systems, commented “This award recognizes Boeing’s ability to support the Air Force with the solutions they need to improve command and control of their network assets. Boeing’s technology solution provides the Air Force with tools to enhance their network architecture, giving them secure, positive measures to ensure mission success.”
Contract work will be completed at Boeing facilities in Anaheim, Calif., and Herndon, Va., and will incorporate Boeing’s Common Enterprise Mission Oriented Architecture, a network service-oriented architecture middleware solution that allows easy automation of network security services and provides seamless integration of new capabilities without disruption.
