The applied research organization of Vencore has been awarded an $11.8 million contract to develop techniques for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to mitigate cyber communication disruption.
Vencore Labs will create systems to detect degraded network performance, assign network resources to communications and alter protocol stack configurations during disruption, the company said Tuesday.
“In this cyber application, we will be using our particular expertise in mission-aware networking and edge-based resilient communications to develop breakthroughs on several fronts, ” said Steve Omick, president of Vencore Labs.
The project is part of DARPA’s Edge-Directed Cyber Technologies for Reliable Mission Communication program.
Vencore will develop an end-to-end system to combine real-time network analytics and configurable protocol stacks for DARPA.
