华盛顿消息,美国空军研究实验室将合同授予博思艾伦汉密尔顿公司(Booz Allen Hamilton)和鲍尔航空航天公司(Ball Aerospace),以研究先进的网络安全和数字工程,保护军用飞机电子系统免受数字威胁。

2021年8月24日授出的无限期交付、无限期数量合同试图在五年内保护这些航空电子系统免受网络攻击,每份合同的价值高达2亿美元。美国空军研究实验室(AFRL)发言人Bryan Ripple表示,这些公司的研究将包括网络评估和测试工具、网络强化技术、弹性网络保护和开放系统架构。

该合同是美国空军研究实验室(AFRL)敏捷和弹性平台架构计划的一部分,旨在开发和集成下一代航空电子网络安全工具和新的系统架构。

Ripple声称:“ARPA计划寻求解决的挑战是,美国空军需要快速有效地增强作战能力,以便在竞争激烈且不断变化的环境中保持技术优势。”

Ripple进一步指出,根据ARPA计划开发的解决方案“将应用于在不同的、有争议的环境中运行的各种相关平台”。

Booz Allen公司将在美国俄亥俄州的Beavercreek完成这项工作,而Ball Aerospace公司将在俄亥俄州的Wright Patterson美国空军基地进行研发工作。

WASHINGTON — The Air Force Research Laboratory awarded contracts to Booz Allen Hamilton and Ball Aerospace to research advanced cybersecurity and digital engineering to protect aircraft electronic systems against digital threats.

The Aug. 24 indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts to try to shield those avionics systems from cyberattacks are worth up to $200 million each over five years. The companies’ research will include cyber assessment and testing tools, cyber-hardening technologies, resilient cyber protections, and open-system architectures, AFRL spokesperson Bryan Ripple said.

The awards are part of AFRL’s Agile and Resilient Platform Architectures program to develop and integrate next-generation avionics cybersecurity tools and new system architectures.

“The challenge that the ARPA program seeks to address is the AF need to rapidly and efficiently field enhanced war-fighting capability in order to maintain technological advantage in highly contested and consistently changing environments,” Ripple said.

Solutions developed under the ARPA program “will be applied to a wide-range of associated platforms that operate within diverse, contested environments,” Ripple noted.

Booz Allen will complete the work in Beavercreek, Ohio, while Ball Aerospace will conduct its research and development at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.
