Northrop Grumman Corporation has spent the past few days displaying a wide array of capabilities and demonstrations that support America’s warfighters and cyber warriors at the U.S. Army’s LandWarNet Conference.
The theme for the conference, sponsored by AFCEA International, is “Transforming Cyber While at War.” Northrop Grumman, stationed in booth 821, featured programs and systems demonstrating innovative solutions ranging from cybersecurity to C4ISR.
“The cyber threat continues to evolve and threaten the security of our nation’s basic enterprise systems, as well as those platforms and subsystems on which the Army trains and fights. Industry needs to leverage emerging technologies to ensure we provide an agile response to those threats that would preclude our soldiers from fighting upon arrival,” said Dr. Michael Papay, Northrop Grumman Information Systems sector vice president for cybersecurity.
Demonstrations included the Battlefield Airborne Communications Node, the Army Knowledge Online/Defense Knowledge Online system, and several innovations from their Cybersecurity Innovations Center including Dynamic Adaptive Defense, Continual Compliance Management and Trusted Cloud Computing solutions.
AKO/DKO is the world’s largest intranet portal providing a single enterprise service portal serving as the entry point for all U.S. Department of Defense authorized uses to access Defense Department and government intranets. This enterprise tool supports the U.S. Army worldwide in operations and missions.
Additionally, Northrop Grumman demonstrated the new “Secure Go Mobile” tool for wireless devices including both the iPhone and iPad.
LandWarNet will also provide Northrop Grumman the opportunity to demonstrate BACN, a high-altitude, airborne communications gateway system that flies on five separate aircraft in order to maintain operational support at all times. BACN improves situational awareness and has been recognized for allowing the warfighter to receive the needed capability in a short period of time.
