L-3, Va. Tech Partner for Arlington Cyber Center; Les Rose Comments

L-3 Communications and Virginia Tech are opening a new cybersecurity research center at the company’s Arlington, Va.-based research center, the Washington Post reports.

According to Marjorie Censer, the center will occupy 7 floors within Virginia Tech’s Ballston research center and function as a point of convergence between L-3 personnel and Virginia Tech’s faculty and student body.

Les Rose, president of L-3’s national security solutions group, told Censer the partnership will concentrate on big data and mobile security research.

Teachers and students can participate in cybersecurity research while L-3 personnel can use Virginia Tech’s laboratories, according to the report.
