Perspecta Inc.’s innovative applied research arm, Perspecta Labs, has received an award on the modular radio frequency, or RF, program for the U.S. Army from the Consortium Management Group, Inc.
The award, on behalf of the Consortium for Command, Control and Communications in Cyberspace, represents follow-on work for the company and is valued at $13 million.
The objective of the program is to provide an efficient, agile and modular RF communications capability to the warfighter. The work supports initial configuration of radio and networking parameters at setup, as well as execution of the primary, alternate, contingency, emergency, or PACE, communications plan.
“Perspecta Labs’ automated PACE solution supports mission success by automating initialization steps and using an intelligent decision agent to maintain warfighter communications in the most challenging environments,” said Petros Mouchtaris, president and general manager, Perspecta Labs.
“We look forward to applying our expertise in machine learning, RF communications and tactical networking to deliver a capability which successfully integrates with critical warfighter systems and increases network resilience,” he added.
Perspecta Labs is to design, develop, integrate and demonstrate an automated PACE capability to reduce the burden on the warfighter and improve network resilience. Leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence, automated PACE technology will deliver network awareness to automatically optimize network configuration and data routing among available tactical radio networks.
