General Dynamics won a $5 million Air Force contract to provide cyber network defense and operational support.
The defense contractor announced Tuesday it will support the 35th Intelligence Squadron Cyberspace Operations’ Senior Shadow program over three years if all contract options are exercised.
John Jolly, vice president and general manager of the company’s advanced information systems unit’s cyber systems division, said GD-AIS has provided cyber intelligence support to the Air Force through the Sensor Shadow program for two decades.
GD-AIS engineers and analysts will collecting and disseminate cyber intelligence to warfighters.
General Dynamics’ cyber business will also support the U.S. Cyber Command and additional Defense Department customers in providing expertise to a network intrusion detection and threat profiling program.
Work will occur at the Texas-based Lackland Air Force Base.
General Dynamics also provides cybersecurity support from its Maryland-based cyber facility, near the headquarters of both Cyber Command and the National Security Agency.
