The Defense Information Systems Agency has teamed up with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to advance the development and deployment of cyber defense tools to military personnel, C4ISR & Networks reported Friday.

“We’re looking at how to leverage cybersecurity from DARPA’s programs,” said Dave Mihelcic, chief technology officer at DISA,

Amber Corrin writes the memorandum of understanding between the two agencies also aims to develop platforms that emerge from DARPA’s information innovation office.

“What we’re trying to do is assess their programs for mature pieces of technology that we can adopt into DISA programs as well as provide them with requirements to drive them in directions in the future,” Mihelcic said.
