Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) and Ball Aerospace has won positions on a $200 million multiple-award contract to help the Air Force Research Laboratory develop technologies to avoid a cyber attack on military avionics systems.
The two companies will conduct research and development efforts with the goal of identifying and mitigating cyber vulnerabilities in aircraft electronics, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.
Work under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will also include prototyping system-of-systems architectures intended to accelerate mission system integration and fielding processes.
AFRL received three proposals for the project via a competitive acquisition and expects work to conclude on Aug. 23. 2028.
DOD noted that Booz Allen will perform services in Beavercreek, Ohio, and Ball Aerospace at Wright-Patterson AF Base.
