Peraton Labs to Support DARPA’s Multi-Domain Network Solution Development Effort

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has awarded Peraton Labs a potential 42-month, $20 million contract for multi-domain network orchestration solution development.

Peraton will design, develop, integrate, test and evaluate a solution that will enable real-time, autonomous discovery and configuration of interconnected military networks. The technology will also support on-demand connectivity in challenging environments.

The contract was awarded under DARPA’s Mission-Integrated Network Control program, Peraton said Wednesday.

Some of the capabilities that the anticipated solution will provide are a secure and on-control overlay for networks, a distributed orchestration framework for battlespace resources, a framework for translating mission intent to networking objectives and an interface that would enable rapid situation intelligence delivery.

Peraton will also develop a software development kit that will support MINC-enabled applications beyond the program.

Petros Mouchtaris, president of Peraton Labs, said the solution will give warfighters a reliable communications capability thanks to intelligent and mission-driven control and the ability to combine legacy and future systems. He shared that the company will use its machine learning, virtualization, networking and communications expertise to enable joint all-domain operations and allow third-party entities to continue improving the solution.

The MINC program was devised to ensure that critical data will find its way to the appropriate user even in a highly contested and ever-changing environment.

Peraton Labs is Peraton’s applied research organization that focuses on cybersecurity, electronic warfare, mobility, analytics and networking. It supports government and commercial customers across the globe.
