CHANTILLY, Va. Digital-engineering firm VTG has begun work on a three-year, $13 million contract to support the U.S. Navy Digital Integration Support Cell (DISC) in its effort to integrate data and technology into all areas of naval operations.
The Navy created the Digital Integration Support Cell (DISC) in late 2018 with the express purpose of accelerating the process of modernizing and integrating existing systems in new ways and developing new systems, combining the best practices of industry and government.
VTG is supporting the DISC by performing research, operational analysis, specialized engineering, and development of the digital platform for Navy and Marine Corps Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), which calls for development of architectures, standards, and processes for integrated naval capability, decision tools, digital pilots, and artificial intelligence through coordinated experiments with the fleet.
