Excellus Solutions has won a $3.2 million subcontract from Salient CRGT on a deal to support the U.S. Air Force’s Defensive Cyber System Engineering program.
Excellus and Salient CRGT will provide expert-level engineering support and standardization to the Air Force Cyberspace Vulnerability Assessment/Hunter and Cyberspace Defense Analysis weapon systems. The DCSE program is a new contracting opportunity designed to augment the U.S. Air Force engineering team for the CVA/H and CDA weapon systems, Salient CRGT said.
“The addition of our highly skilled systems engineers and architects to the CVA/Hunter and CDA weapon system teams will greatly improve the program office’s ability to provide [support] to the operator in the field,” said Salient CRGT CEO Brad Antle. “The increased capabilities brought to the program by Excellus-Salient CRGT team provides an opportunity to increase the knowledge base on the team as well as increase the response rate to the ever-increasing needs of both supported weapon systems.”
Salient and Excellus will help realign the systems engineering efforts with the program office and Air Force Space Command policy, direction and guidance. Salient CRGT will also provide system design, modification, sustainment, and life-cycle engineering support.
