The work on the contract will enable the secure exchange of data - including streaming video, images and audio - to enhance mission collaboration. BAE Systems will also provide research, development and evaluation of new technologies, including the integration of innovative artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.
 
“As the military cyberspace battlefield expands, we understand how critical it is that secure, innovative intelligence solutions are available to warfighting commands and combat support agencies to communicate safety and effectively,” said Pete Trainer, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Air Force Solutions business. “We are pleased to continue our long-standing partnership with the Air Force Research Laboratory and provide our expertise in high-assurance, cross-domain technologies to meet this new mission need.

"Our services will provide end-users access to virtual information and analysis faster, allowing them to make informed decisions quickly.”
