Dynetics Receives $125M Contract to Ensure Cyber Resiliency of Army Weapon Systems

The U.S. Army has awarded Leidos company Dynetics a $124.7 million contract to support Survivability and Resiliency Exercises, where the capability of soldiers and critical weapon systems to operate amid cyber electromagnetic activities is assessed and tested.

Jonathan Pettus, senior vice president and operations manager for aerospace, defense and civil operations at Dynetics, said the partnership with the military branch will enable the development and deployment of innovative capabilities to enhance the cyber protection of critical weapon systems.

Work under the contract will support the Army’s missile and space program executive office. Work will be carried out at Redstone Arsenal and other test facilities, including the Army Fires Center of Excellence in Oklahoma, Leidos said.

Dynetics has been conducting CEMA exercises annually since it joined the Fires Innovation Science and Technology Accelerator in 2020. The exercises aim to identify and address weaknesses in weapon systems and train soldiers in combating CEMA attacks.
