Another Cyber Warrior

A recent Boeing release said the company received a $1.2 million contract from Air Force Research Lab’s Rome, N.Y., directorate to “study and demonstrate improved situational awareness, visualization, and automated course-of-action processing for network environments during cyber attack.” The company plans to demonstrate the study’s results at AFRL. Steve Oswald, VP and GM of Boeing Intelligence and Security Systems, said in the release that the contract “recognizes Boeing’s ability to support the Air Force with the solutions they need to improve command and control of their network assets. Boeing is working on this cyber effort with two subsidiaries it acquired in 2008—Federated Software Group and Tapestry Solutions.
