Research Innovations Inc. has won a potential $21M software prototyping agreement under a three-phase U.S. Army program that seeks to provide a cyber operational picture to military commanders.
RII said Monday it will apply the company’s IMPACT technology and DevSecOps methodology to help the service branch develop the Cyber Situational Understanding platform.
The Cyber SU software will be developed to increase situational awareness of military cyberspace operations and help the commander and cyber electromagnetic activities working group understand different layers of the domain.
“Over the past year, we have worked closely with members of the Army tactical cyber community at events like the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence’s Cyber Quest to learn first-hand what they really need, and to experience the challenges they face,” said Rich Briggs, founder and chief technology officer of RII.
IMPACT is based upon the RapidAdapt framework the company developed to support multidomain command-and-control systems in the military sector.
The Army awarded the project using a procurement method called other transaction authority.
