Raytheon has won a $9.8 million contract by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) as part of its Plan X program, which seeks to help US government agencies plan, execute and assess cyber network operations.
Raytheon's research and development is focused on enabling the Department of Defense (DoD) to predictably and rapidly scale and execute cyber operations with accurate assessable results.
"When supporting our customers' missions, we can help assess the results of launching missiles or any weapons in other domains—land, air, sea or space," said Jack Harrington, vice president of Cybersecurity and Special Missions within Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Raytheon is working to provide the same mission confidence to the cyber domain through our work with DARPA's Plan X."
Plan X, first announced in 2011, is DARPA's foundational cyberwarfare program to develop platforms for the DoD to plan for, conduct and assess cyberwarfare in a manner similar to kinetic warfare.

The United States is reportedly facing a shortage of cybersecurity professionals — particularly for positions within the federal government because it does not offer salaries as high as the private sector. According to a study published by the RAND organization, the demand for cybersecurity professionals began to overtake supply in 2007, largely due to increased reports of large-scale hacking, including the leakage of credit card data, attacks on Internet connectivity, and the discovery of "advanced persistence threats" — teams of hackers who go after intellectual property by establishing a persistent presence in the networks of U
