Sentar Receives SBIR Contract to Integrate Cyberattack Protection Tech Into Digital Twins

The Defense Logistics Agency has awarded a woman-owned small business a contract to improve operational resiliency and protect operational technology systems from cyberthreats.

On Thursday, Sentar announced that it received a Small Business Innovation Research Proof of Concept contract from DLA to integrate cyberattack protection technology into digital twin architectures. The contract requires a business with years of experience in cybersecurity and innovative technologies to analyze, map and predict cyberattacks against a small manufacturing system’s digital twin, Sentar said.

Gary Mayes, senior director of research and development, said the company is honored to integrate its cyberattack analysis and prediction technology into digital twin architectures, improving awareness and protection for operational technology systems.

The SBIR contract comes after Sentar received a National Cyber Range Complex Event Planning, Operations and Support IT Service Management Support contract in October 2023 to provide realistic cybersecurity environments for testing and evaluation.

The use of digital twins in various applications has been growing in recent years. Contested logistics is one area where experts are seeing potential. Paul Ott, Accenture Federal Services managing director, said digital twins offer a way to improve the supply chain for future fights in contested environments.
