BAE Systems has received a US$8.5m contract to develop a secure mobile military communications network for the US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

The network, part of DARPA’s Intrinsically Assurable Mobile Ad hoc Network (IAMANET) programme, will be designed to protect against cyber attacks.

BAE will develop and test network protocols that support the integrity, availability, reliability, confidentiality, and safety of network communications and data.

IAMANET will immunise networks against traditional cyber attacks such as protocol exploits, denial of service, data exfiltration, and propagation of worms.

BAE Systems leads a research team to develop a system that combines recent advances in identity-based encryption, network coding, dynamic access control, and resilient distributed services.

The team consists of the California Institute of Technology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Massachusetts, Stanford University, the University of Texas and Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs.
