Engility Holdings Inc. has been awarded a $31 million contract to provide cybersecurity assessment, analysis and research for the Defense Technical Information Center in support of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Cyber Security Engineering Division.
“This new contract, a take-away win, expands our cybersecurity partnership with the Air Force and gives us the opportunity to bring our cyber vulnerability assessment and research expertise to support their evolving requirements,” Engility CEO Lynn Dugle said. “We look forward to working with DTIC and helping the Air Force solve their toughest cyber challenges.”
“We want to be able to ‘bake in’ cybersecurity from the beginning … with our weapons systems,” Air Force Materiel Command Cmd. Gen. Ellen M. Pawlikowski said.
Engility will deliver cyber services and solutions that include assessments, independent verification and validation, site audits, software assurance, prototypes and processes. The company will study, analyze, advise and conduct research and development to advance cybersecurity for Air Force mission requirements.
The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, one of six centers in the Air Force Materiel Command, acquires and supports Air Force weapon systems throughout their entire life cycle.
The 5-year cost plus fixed fee award was made in the fourth quarter of 2016.
