Perspecta’s research arm, Perspecta Labs, has been awarded a task order from the U.S. Army with a maximum potential value of $25 million over a 5-year period.
The lab will serve as the applied research and experimentation partner for the cybersecurity Collaborative Research Alliance program. The program is an effort between the Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory, CCDC C5ISR Center, academia and industry to advance the foundation of cyber science in the context of Army networks. Perspecta Labs has been a member of the CRA since 2014.
“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, president of Perspecta Labs. “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.”
Under the new order, Perspecta Labs will continue to support the CRA with applied research and experimentation. The company will leverage and extend its CyberVAN testbed to provide sophisticated capabilities for cyber experimentation in tactical and strategic environments. CyberVAN provides a realistic, high-fidelity cyber environment that scales to handle large networks, and provides flexible, easy-to-use libraries and interfaces for users.
