Lockheed Martin has collaborated with the US Army Civilian Career Management Activity (ACCMA) to provide web-based cyber training to nearly 17,000 US Army personnel.

The training is being provided as part of an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) awarded to Lockheed Martin by the US Army.

The company will deliver this training leveraging its latest cyber management solution, called ‘Mission Readiness & Reporting (MR2)’.

It will allow the army to identify, assess, cultivate, and train its remote-based civilian employees, based on their individual capabilities and adhering to the US Department of Defense’s (Dod) Cyber Workforce Framework.

Lockheed Martin Cyber and Intelligence vice-president Tish Rourke said: “MR2 connects cyber training and mission readiness and ensures that civilian cyber workforce is agile, resilient, and ahead of threat.”

This work will be executed by a Lockheed Martin-led team comprising Aries Security, Ultimate Knowledge Institute (UKI), and Amazon Web Services govCloud.

UKI and Aries will be responsible for delivering training options for the cyber workforce while Lockheed Martin MR2 will be used for analytics purposes to support workforce skills development.

In another collaborative effort, Lockheed Martin and Intel have completed the integration of a 5G Core and Open Radio Access Network with its 5G.MIL Hybrid Base Station (HBS).

It will provide decisive information dominance to users, including the US DoD, across multiple domains.

The integration of Intel’s Xeon Scalable processors and FlexRAN reference architecture into the 3U tactical chassis allowed Lockheed Martin to implement open system communications gateway capabilities with flight-ready hardware.

Lockheed Martin Skunk Works vice-president and general manager John Clark said: “The integration of 5G and military tactical radios into HBS enables resilient, link-diverse data routing throughout battlespaces to make future crewed-uncrewed distributed teaming missions possible.”
