BAE Systems to develop autonomous network tech for US Army
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded BAE Systems a $24 million contract to develop software that autonomously configures tactical networks for mission-critical communications.
The agreement is part of the Mission-Integrated Network Control (MINC) program to develop tech that delivers “the right data to the right user at the right time.”
It aims to build and demonstrate an advanced, secure communications network for multi-domain operations.
“Reliable data and communications networks are critical in modern warfare,” the company said. “Currently, no capability exists to dynamically control interconnected networks and ensure that warfighters can communicate across domains in contested environments.”
As part of the contract, BAE Systems will develop the algorithms and necessary software to “anticipate, configure, and control” available resources to optimize the flow of information.
