FALLS CHURCH, Va. As a competitor in the DevSecOps industry, Northrop Grumman announced that the company is drawing its Lean-Agile system and software development experience to help the U.S. Navy reach its goal of combat system speed-to-fleet vision.
According to the company, Northrop Grumman has system coordinator responsibilities for Unified Platform (UP) for U.S. Cyber Command, and is also performing on the U.S. Air Force’s five-year Software DevSecOps Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA). On UP, Northrop Grumman is creating and deploying cyber capabilities across the Department of Defense using the Air Force Platform One ecosystem.
Northrop Grumman’s UP work builds on the Cyber Mission Platform (CMP) program where Northrop Grumman officials claim that the company reduced the CI/CD Pipeline from months to days and reduced average release installation from hours to minutes.
The company also leverages its “Factory in a Box” containerized software development environment approach in this case to work coding and refactoring challenges in real-time, collaboratively with teammates from the defense and software industries.
