Huntsville, Alabama-based small business Five Stones Research Corp. has won a five-year, $266.4 million contract to help the Missile Defense Agency identify and mitigate cybersecurity risks to weapon systems.
5SRC will additionally support the Department of Defense in efforts to integrate cybersecurity data into the system architecture, secure cloud-based information technology assets and evaluate proposed IT platforms, the Pentagon said Monday.
The award also calls for 5SRC to help update DOD Computer Network Defense Service Provider framework.
MDA received seven proposals for the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract via the SAM.gov website and is obligating $2.4 million in fiscal 2022 research, development, test and evaluation funds at the time of the award.
Locations of work include Fort Belvoir in Virginia, Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado and Fort Greely in Alaska.
5SRC is a woman-owned, Native American-owned small disadvantaged business that offers information management, engineering and program management support services to the government sector.
