Vencore Labs to Develop Cellular Technology for the Department of Defense

Chantilly, VA – March 28, 2017 – Vencore, Inc. announced today that its innovative research arm, Vencore Labs, Inc., was awarded a contract on the Cellular Range Telemetry Network (CeRTN) program supporting the Department of Defense (DoD). The three-year contract has a total value of $6 million.

Under CeRTN, Vencore Labs, formerly known as Applied Communication Sciences, will develop a prototype system that leverages commercial cellular technology for Aeronautical Mobile Telemetry (AMT) applications at DoD Major Range and Test Facility Bases.

As wireless services and devices proliferate, spectrum availability for these applications dwindles. The DoD is seeking to reduce the amount of spectrum required for test and evaluation activities.

The Vencore Labs CeRTN system will provide robust cellular coverage for AMT using commercial-off-the-shelf cellular technology devices. Specifically, the system will adapt commercial cellular equipment for use in delivering telemetry data from high-speed test vehicles during flight test exercises, ultimately providing frequency reuse and improved spectral efficiency.

“At Vencore Labs, we strive to discover exceptional solutions to new problems associated with sophisticated communications and wireless networks,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Vencore Labs. “We are excited to partner with the DoD to utilize the spectrum more efficiently and address this growing problem.”

Vencore Labs has been supporting the United States Army to address key challenges of mobility and security for tactical commercial wireless networks, an extension of the movement towards commercial solutions for airborne telemetry applications.

Vencore Labs to Provide DARPA with Advanced Cyber Defense Research

Chantilly, VA – March 23, 2017 – Vencore, Inc. announced today that its innovative research arm, Vencore Labs, Inc., has been awarded multiple contracts from the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to deliver research in the area of cyber defenses against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. The contracts have a $17.7 million value and will be performed as part of DARPA’s Extreme DDoS Defense (XD3) program over the next three years.

The goal of the XD3 program is to develop fundamentally new DDoS defenses that afford greater resilience across a broad range of DDoS attacks than existing approaches. Several recent DDoS attacks have caused widespread disruption to popular Internet services. These attacks leverage the widespread and growing deployment of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices combined with freely available malicious code to create disruption that easily overwhelms current defensive techniques. This underscores the need for fundamentally new technologies to detect, mitigate and fight through the effects of DDoS attacks on a large scale.

Under the contract, Vencore Labs plans to develop a comprehensive solution that covers the full spectrum of the DDoS attack surface. Research on distributed communications and network maneuvering will make it harder for attackers to identify high-value targets, and will deny them the critical feedback they need to determine whether an attack is successful; research on DDoS detection and mitigation will help network operators protect critical services from the effects of large scale IoT-based attacks.

“Through the advancement of IoT devices, the threat landscape is expanding, and our defenses need to evolve accordingly,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Vencore Labs. “We look forward to working with DARPA to develop innovative techniques to combat these attacks, making it impossible for attackers to damage critical services.”

This new work draws on Vencore Labs’ expertise with defending and securing large-scale, heterogeneous computer networks. Additionally, the Vencore Labs team will bring a deep-rooted legacy in protecting mission-critical systems and national cyber infrastructure to the project.
