Contract Award – Lockheed Martin – $31 Million – DARPA

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded a $31 million contract to Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] for new cyber assurance procedures to improve security, dynamic bandwidth allocation, and policy-based prioritization levels at the individual and unit level.

John Mengucci, President of Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Services-Defense, said “With systems from land, air and space connected to the Global Information Grid, cyber security is vital to every aspect of military operations, and new network threats and attacks require revolutionary protection concepts.  Through this project, as well as our cyber Mission Maker initiatives, we are working to enhance cyber security and ensure the warfighter can fight on despite cyber attacks.”

Lockheed Martin will team with Anagran, Juniper Networks, LGS Innovations, and Microsoft to develop the new Military Network Protocol. Stanford University will also support the development effort.
