Raytheon cyber maneuver technology to help safeguard Army networks from information attacks

MC KINNEY, Texas, 18 July 2012. The Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) Network Centric Systems business in McKinney, Texas, won a $3.1 million U.S. Army contract to develop cyber maneuver technology to help safeguard Army tactical networks from information warfare attacks.

The contract is part of the Morphing Network Assets to Restrict Adversarial Reconnaissance (MORPHINATOR) program to thwart cyber attackers in dangerous environments.

Cyber maneuver dynamically modifies tactical network configuration, hosts and applications that is undetectable and unpredictable to potential enemies, but that still is manageable for network administrators.

"The intent of cyber maneuver is to place computer network defense technology into a state, thereby shifting the advantage away from the attacker," says Jack Donnelly, director of trusted network systems at Raytheon Network Centric Systems. "By constantly changing the characteristics of the networks it resides on, MOPRHINATOR provides a more and trusted networking solution."

MORPHINATOR works with other security devices to provide information assurance. Raytheon received the contract from the U.S. Army's Communications, Electronics, Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC), Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate, and will do the work in Largo, Fla., and Aberdeen, Md.
