Vencore Leads Activity-Based Intelligence Planning Project for SPAWAR

Chantilly, Va. — August 1, 2016 — Vencore, Inc. announced today that it was awarded a contract to lead the concept definition and strategic planning to implement advanced analysis techniques, including Activity-Based Intelligence (ABI)  and Object-Based Production (OBP), for the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).  Vencore’s work will be performed as a subcontractor to AUSGAR Technologies, Inc. and the contract is valued at $1.5 million.

ABI and OBP are techniques that can enhance the ability to gather and analyze massive amounts of data, and, in turn, quickly provide actionable insights and quantifiable conclusions.  This eliminates the need to manually gather data from multiple stovepipes and piece correlating information together. 

Vencore’s engineers can develop and implement advanced multi-intelligence solutions for data fusion, automated association, and anticipatory analysis.

“We are proud to support SPAWAR in operationalizing the highly sophisticated and accurate methods of ABI and OBP to collect and analyze data,” said Mac Curtis, president and chief executive officer of Vencore.  “These methods will allow SPAWAR to integrate volumes of intelligence data with an unprecedented level of speed and accuracy.”    

Vencore offers a unique end-to-end approach for mission and systems engineering providing the customer with a comprehensive enterprise solution to evolving mission needs. Our expert team envisions the future of naval warfare and works with the customer to realize next-generation warfighting concepts and technologies.  Vencore’s approach to agile systems engineering and our Mission Optimization Framework (MOF) concept integrate people, processes, and technologies to revolutionize our customer’s mission

The Battlespace Awareness and Information Operations Program Office (PMW 120), a division of the Program Executive Office for Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (PEO C4I), is sponsoring this program.

Vencore Labs to Provide Cyber Defense Analysis to DARPA

Chantilly, VA – July 26, 2016 – Vencore Labs, Inc., wholly owned subsidiary of Vencore, Inc., announced today that it has been awarded a prime contract from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to deliver research in the area of enhanced cyber defense by developing a fully air-gapped detection system based on analysis of involuntary analog emissions. The four-year contract has a total ceiling value of $8.3M and will be performed as part of DARPA’s Leveraging the Analog Domain for Security (LADS) program.

The ultimate goal of the LADS program, sponsored in conjunction with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), is to develop technology for the detection of malicious behavior of embedded and Internet of Things (IoT) devices by monitoring their analog emissions.

Specifically, Vencore Labs will look at radio frequency, acoustic, and power signatures produced by the system being monitored in order to determine if the system is operating normally or is under attack. This would allow for true air gap monitoring of critical systems, leaving no way for an attacker to know that such defenses are in place.

“Securing the Internet of Things is a real challenge,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Vencore Labs. “But the potential threat is also very real. We look forward to expanding our partnership with DARPA in order to develop an innovative technique to solve this complex problem.”

This new work draws on Vencore Labs’ expertise with very low-level signals in noisy environments, binary program analysis, and machine learning techniques. Additionally, the Vencore Labs team will bring a deep rooted legacy in protecting mission-critical systems and national cyber infrastructure to the project.
