Raytheon to Support Air Force’s LevelUP Program

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Raytheon Intelligence & Space a five-year basic ordering agreement for DevSecOps LevelUP software services. The LevelUP program was created to help the military branch establish its Cyber Works “cyber factory” and Unified Platform, a cyberspace operations system for future cyber mission force capabilities.

“To combat increasingly fast, capable and agile threats, we must be able to deliver services within hours, or even minutes," said David Appel, RIS vice president of defense and civil solutions for space and command and control systems. Appel is a Potomac Officers Club member.

The BOA will support the Air Force in activities related to Platform One, which serves as an official DevSecOps enterprise services team for the Department of Defense, RIS said Wednesday.

According to the company, Platform One will drive all software development for the Air Force in the future, covering efforts such as the Advanced Battle Management System and Joint All-Domain Command and Control. 

“This agreement provides an avenue for the Air Force to achieve that. We’re now positioned to rapidly deliver agile cyber solutions to the Air Force and the Department of Defense," Appel said.

RIS previously supported the Air Force's Kessel Run software development project and the Space Force's Future Operationally Resilient Ground Evolution Mission Data Processing Application Framework.

The Raytheon Technologies subsidiary is based in McKinney, Texas. It develops advanced, sensors, training, cyber and software solutions. 

The company also specializes in air traffic management, cybersecurity, ground systems, command and control, radars, system integration, reconnaissance, manufacturing, modernization and sustainment.
