Invictus International Consulting will help the Air Force Research Laboratory explore approaches to model, simulate and test cybersecurity technologies under a five-year, $97.9 million prototyping contract.
Alexandria, Virginia-based Invictus will conduct research and development efforts for the U.S. Air Force's Operational Simulated Cyber Environment Resiliency Software project, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.
The R&D project's goal is to build a platform that could help cyber mission forces increase system resiliency against cyber attacks.
AFRL received two offers for the cost-reimbursement contract and is obligating $967,000 at the time of award from the branch's fiscal 2021 research, development, test and evaluation funds.
The Pentagon expects work to conclude Feb. 3, 2025.
