Octo Wins Deal to Provide Software Prototype for DCGS-Navy Program
Octo announced that it has been awarded a U.S. Navy contract to provide an Alliance software prototype for the Distributed Common Ground System–Navy program. The Reston, Virginia-headquartered technology firm said the DCGS-N is the naval component of a family of systems providing integration of intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting capabilities afloat and ashore in support of Navy and joint operations.
Alliance serves as a common data layer that abstracts services and business logic from underlying data structures to enable rapid integration of new data sources and makes that data discoverable by Naval Information Warfare analysts and operational decision-makers, Octo explained.
James Vant, general manager of Octo’s Defense Business Unit, said the deal will see the company providing automation, data prioritization and visualization, cybersecurity and other technologies to the Navy, which, in turn, will ensure that “the right data gets to the right people at the right time.”
Meanwhile, Mehul Sanghani, Octo’s CEO, said the prototype the company will deliver has the potential to enable every U.S. Navy ship to “leverage more data with higher levels of security than ever before,” enabling users to access key elements of intelligence vital to making informed decisions.
Under the contract, Octo will deliver an initial prototype of the Alliance open source software product, conduct subsequent engagement sessions with stakeholders and users, and ultimately deliver an enhanced prototype of the Alliance software product. The Navy ordered a prototype that is scalable, to support ashore and afloat requirements, and must demonstrate resiliency in denied and degraded communications environments.
Octo said that will provide Alliance software provisioning and configuration, technical evaluation, and product support throughout the prototype’s development.
