Partnership will further warfighter effectiveness, demonstrate global
leadership in defense technology
CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 24, 2017--
Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL) announced today the company secured a
$15 million contract to provide the U.S. Navy’s Frigate Program Office
(PMS 515) with cybersecurity engineering and architecture for the next
generation frigate program.
“As our nation faces complex international challenges, the Navy is
entrusting Engility to drive significant advancements for the next
generation frigate program,” said Lynn Dugle, Engility CEO. “The Navy is
seizing the opportunity to change the shape and direction of
shipbuilding, demonstrating that the U.S. is and will remain the global
leader in cutting-edge defense technology.”
For the first time, the U.S. Navy will build cybersecurity and network
capabilities into the core architecture of ships, a sizeable change from
the previous standard of bolting on these features at post-production.
Engility’s platform cybersecurity architecture brings enhanced cyber
resilience, including improved protection in the form of “digital
watertight doors” to the Navy’s newest shipbuilding program. Just like
watertight doors ensure ship operations in the event of a water breach,
digital watertight doors protect operations from data breaches.
Since 2015, Engility has partnered with PMS 515 and the U.S. Navy Space
and Naval Warfare Systems Command to design this next generation of
platform cybersecurity architecture. This new contract will continue
Engility’s cybersecurity architecture and engineering work with the Navy
for the next five years.
