BAE To Develop Military Communications Network

by Staff Writers
Burlington MA (SPX) Apr 28, 2008
BAE Systems will develop an "intrinsically secure" mobile military communications network designed to protect against cyber attacks. The company will develop and test network protocols that support the integrity, availability, reliability, confidentiality, and safety of network communications and data.

The $8.5 million contract, awarded through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's Intrinsically Assurable Mobile Ad hoc Network (IAMANET) program, targets the security challenges of mobile ad hoc networks. Such networks are particularly susceptible to passive analysis and manipulation by adversaries.

"Cyber security presents a major operational challenge, precisely when our services are becoming increasingly dependent on seamless access to tactical information," said Dr. Nils Sandell Jr., vice president and general manager of advanced information technologies for BAE Systems in Burlington, Massachusetts.

"IAMANET allows us to apply our wealth of security research to this challenge and provide the military with a secure network that will keep critical, tactical intelligence confidential and flowing."
