The United States Army as the Applied Research and Experimentation Partner (AREP) for the cybersecurity Collaborative Research Alliance (CRA) program has awarded a potential five-year, $25 million task order to Perspecta Labs to continue applied research, maturation, experimentation and validation work for the service branch, Perspecta announced on Wednesday.
"At Perspecta Labs, we pride ourselves on successfully transitioning the advanced research we conduct and innovative solutions we invent to real-world applications," said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Perspecta Labs.
Perspecta Labs will continue to support the CRA with applied research and experimentation and assist with the accelerated transition of this research into the field. Specifically, the company will leverage and extend its CyberVAN testbed to provide sophisticated capabilities for cyber experimentation in tactical, as well as strategic, environments.
"We are excited to lead the efforts of transferring cyber technology research into operational capabilities to support Army missions and provide warfighters with resilient, secure, intelligent networks in dynamic and hostile battlefield environments," Mouchtaris added.
Perspecta Labs’ CyberVAN provides a realistic, high-fidelity cyber environment that scales to handle large networks, incorporates wired and wireless networking effects accurately, and provides flexible, easy-to-use libraries and interfaces for users.
