Raytheon awarded DARPA contract to research and develop new approach to cyber mission execution

Raytheon was awarded a $9.8 million contract by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency as part of its Plan X program, which seeks to help U.S. government agencies plan, execute and assess cyber network operations. Raytheon’s research and development is focused on enabling the Department of Defense 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.
