Peraton announced on Wednesday that the company has received an 18-year, $360 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract from the U.S. Air Force to continue its work performing software analysis and testing for the Minuteman III ICBM System.
"For more than 45 years, Peraton has proudly partnered with the U.S. Air Force and Department of Defense to support the Minuteman III systems," said Tom Afferton, president of Cyber Mission sector for Peraton.
The company will continue to provide independent verification of safety criteria for the Minuteman III operational software under the IDIQ follow-on contract. Peraton will continue to leverage digital simulators and emulators it has developed to allow for testing of Minuteman III software.
"Our team's strong system knowledge and deep experience in static and dynamic code analysis and software testing allows us to deliver best-in-class capabilities to the Air Force," Afferton added.
In addition, Tom Afferton will serve as the keynote introducer for Morgan Adamski, chief of NSA’s Cybersecurity Collaboration Center, who will be giving the keynote address for GovConWire Events’ upcoming Defense Cybersecurity Forum on May 12th.
The Forum will explore the progress that NSA and other federal agencies have made to protect U.S. national security and enhance its capabilities in threat intelligence, vulnerability assessments and cyber defense to stay ahead of the nation’s adversaries in cyberspace.
