ARLINGTON, Va. BAE Systems has won a five-year, $85 million contract from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to develop, deploy, modernize, and maintain cross-domain solutions enabling secure transfer of sensitive information between government networks.
Under the terms of the contract, BAE Systems will deliver systems to enable the secure exchange of data -- including streaming video, images, and audio that will enhance mission collaboration for the AFRL and other groups.
