Vencore’s research arm has received a 17-month, $2.5 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to modernize airborne systems and networks as part of an effort to facilitate uninterrupted communication in adverse environments.
Vencore Labs will develop technologies to help protect network and radio communications from jamming systems as part of DARPA’s Dynamic Network Adaptation for Mission Optimization program, Vencore said Thursday.
The program aims to integrate various mission objectives into every adaptation stage of the network to make full use of mission data.
“Having the opportunity to play a leading role in enabling our country to conduct operations against adversaries while configuring our most critical assets in advance of a mission, is a real honor,” said Petros Mouchtaris, president of Vencore Labs.
Vencore Labs’ approach is designed to shift and reroute the flow of information to change paths in order to keep communication stable during jamming attempts, outages or aircraft motion.
