Intelligent RF communications solution introduced by Perspecta

CHANTILLY, Va. Perspecta Inc., announced that its innovative applied research arm, Perspecta Labs, was awarded a prime award from the Consortium Management Group, Inc. (CMG), on behalf of the Consortium for Command, Control, and Communications in Cyberspace (C5) for work on a modular radio frequency (RF) communications solution for the United States Army.

The award, which represents new work for the company, has a total value of $2.9 million and work will be performed over a 12-month period of performance.

The objective of the program is to provide an efficient, agile, and modular RF communications capability to the warfighter to enable mission execution in congested and contested environments. Perspecta Labs will develop and demonstrate an automated Primary, Alternate, Contingency, and Emergency (PACE) communications solution, using automation and intelligence to route data among available RF and networking technologies.

Perspecta Labs' automated PACE solution will feature an intelligent decision engine to select from and switch to diverse transport mechanisms, as well as a data model to collect and process critical information to inform the decision engine. The solution will also use automated initialization processes.
