Raytheon and Data Tactics have won contracts to produce mission execution software for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency‘s offensive cyber project known as “Plan X,” Nextgov reported Tuesday.
Aliya Sternstein writes Raytheon won $9.8 million to develop a program that intends to run preset cyberattacks through scripts and codes.
Sternstein reports DARPA wants Raytheon to make a program that functions like the auto-pilot feature in aircraft.
Data Tactics was awarded $25.8 million to produce an infrastructure and framework for cyberwar maneuvers, according to the report.
DARPA received six proposals for this phase of “Plan X,” Nextgov reported.
