Raytheon logo_EbizA subsidiary of Raytheon has been awarded an $8 million contract to help redesign the National Science Foundation‘s internet-based laboratory for networking and distributed systems research in an effort to help scientists meet the requirements of technologies online.

Raytheon BBN Technologies will work to expand the Global Environment for Network Innovations platform to help further the studies in education, medicine, network research and public safety, Raytheon said Monday.

“GENI is a tremendous success, surpassing its original goals. Today, GENI is helping to fundamentally change the way in which the world gathers and shares information” said Mark Berman, GENI project director at Raytheon.

BBN has carried out system engineering and project management for the GENI Project Office since 2007.

NSF’s GENI platform is designed to operate applications for computer-intensive education, first responder communications, storm tracking, big data collaboration, traffic and accident monitoring and personalized medicine.
