Peraton has been awarded a potential five-year, $979 million task order to help the Department of Defense, U.S. Central Command and its partners gain operational edge in information systems and strengthen national security.
The Chantilly, Virginia-based company will provide operational planning, implementation and assessment services and boost the coordination and information-related capabilities of USCENTCOM and its mission partners, Peraton said Wednesday.
Under the task order, the company will also strengthen the information operations capacity to expand the nation’s competitive lead and meet national security targets.
Tom Afferton, president of Peraton’s cyber mission sector, said the company will help enhance USCENTCOM’s information operations function. He also cited OPIAS as example of Peraton’s support in advancing customers’ integration of cyber and information operations.
The company noted that it has been helping the initiative since 2016 through USCENTCOM’s Counter Threat Messaging Support Program.
