The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has selected BAE Systems to develop data-driven, cyber-hunting tools that detect and analyze cyber threats to help protect extremely large enterprise networks.
The contract for Phase 1, 2, and 3 of the program is valued at approximately $5.2 million.
Because most current tools do not offer the scale and processing speed needed to adequately defend enterprise networks, the goal of DARPA’s Cyber-Hunting at Scale (CHASE) program is to develop, demonstrate, and evaluate new, automated cyber-defense tools for use within and across these types of networks. BAE Systems’ unique solution, which combines advanced machine learning and cyber-attack modeling, intends to address this critical need by automatically detecting and defeating advanced cyber threats that could currently go undetected. The result could be better-defended commercial networks, using existing storage and existing resources. The technology could also be used to help protect government and military networks.
“Today, advanced cyber attacks within many enterprise networks go entirely unnoticed among an overwhelming amount of network data, or they require intensive manual analysis by expert teams,” said Anne Taylor, product line director for the Cyber Technology group at BAE Systems. “Our technology aims to alleviate resource constraints to actively hunt for cyber threats that evade security measures, enhancing the collective cyber defense of these networks”.
The United States' Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently completed Phase 2 flight tests of its Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA) program demonstrating advanced algorithms performing real-world tasks without human assistance. FLA performs tasks dangerous for humans – such as pre-mission reconnaissance in a hostile urban setting or searching damaged structures for survivors following an earthquake, DARPA said in a statement Wednesday
Lockheed Martin and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently performed a series of flight tests demonstrating how a system of systems (SoS) approach enables seamless – and rapid – integration across air, space, land, sea and cyber in contested environments. The demonstrations held at the Naval Air Warfare Center in China Lake, California, were part of a five year DARPA program called System of Systems Integration Technology and Experimentation (SoSITE)
US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agencys (DARPA) Ground X-Vehicle Technologies (GXV-T) program aims to improve mobility, survivability, safety and effectiveness of future combat vehicles without piling excessive armor. Several Phase 2 contract awardees recently demonstrated advances on a variety of technologies to meet the programs goals, the agency said in a statement Friday
The US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has completed its Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program to develop a naval vessel that can traverse thousands of kilometers without a single crew on board for months at a time. DARPA has transferred the technology demonstration vessel, Sea Hunter, to the Office of Naval Research (ONR) which will continue developing the revolutionary prototype vehicle—the first of what could ultimately become an entirely new class of unmanned ocean-going vessel—as the Medium Displacement Unmanned Surface Vehicle (MDUSV)
Saudi Aramco and Raytheon Company, through its subsidiary Raytheon Saudi Arabia, have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a joint venture company that will develop and cyber security services in Saudi Arabia and the region. The JV will increase cyber security protections available to Saudi Aramco, its suppliers, customers and affiliates
Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) has been selected to participate in the first phase of the United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Subterranean (SubT) Challenge program as part of an international team led by the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). The DARPA SubT Challenge is focused on advancing technologies that will enhance the ability to rapidly map, navigate and search subterranean environments through both systems and virtual competitions
Leonardo today opened a training facility in Lincoln, UK to educate defence technical specialists within the Cyber and Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) domain. An example of the type of training imparted at the Academy is to train UK MoD personnel to protect platforms against the high-tech threat radar systems that they may face in operational theatres such as Syria, a Leonardo press release said
