Cybersecurity work for Army to be continued by Perspecta LabsNews
October 30, 2019
CHANTILLY, Va. Perspecta Inc. announced that its innovative research arm, Perspecta Labs, won a task order from the U.S. Army as the Applied Research and Experimentation Partner (AREP) for the cybersecurity Collaborative Research Alliance (CRA) program. The program has a maximum potential value of $25 million over a five-year period of performance if all options are exercised.
The cybersecurity CRA is a collaborative alliance between the Combat Capabilities Development Command Army Research Laboratory (CCDC), CCDC C5ISR Center, academia, and industry to advance the foundation of cyber science in the context of Army networks.
Under the new AREP task order, the company will leverage and extend its CyberVAN testbed to provide sophisticated capabilities for cyber experimentation in tactical, as well as strategic, environments.
Perspecta Labs' CyberVAN testbed is the primary mechanism for conducting experimentation, validation, maturation, and hardening of novel CRA research in preparation for the transition to Army networks.
