Raytheon has won a $3.1 million U.S. Army contract to develop a cyber maneuvering technology for protecting network systems, the company announced Monday.
According to the company, the Morphing Network Assets to Restrict Adversarial system uses cyber maneuvering techniques to hinder potential enemies in high-threat environments.
Jack Donnelly, director for the company’s trusted network systems unit, said cyber maneuver aims to set a proactive computer network defense technology.
Cyber maneuver dynamically changes the aspects and configurations of networks, hosts and applications while maintaining its manageability, all without being detected by an adversary.
The Army’s space and terrestrial communications directorate awarded the contract and the directorate is based within the branch’s communications, electronics, research, development and engineering center.
Raytheon will perform work in Largo, Fla. and Aberdeen, Md.
