SRI International has won a $7.3 million contract to provide software to the Air Force in support of its Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization Systems (RADICS) program.
The goal of the RADICS program is to enable skilled cyber and power engineers to restore electrical service within seven days of an attack that overwhelms the recovery capabilities of the impacted organizations.
The program will develop automated systems to detect indications and warning of an impending attack, provide situational awareness, accelerate recovery actions by enabling first responders to isolate affected systems from the Internet, establish a secure communications network and characterize the nature of the threat, the Defense Department said in a release.
Work will be performed in Menlo Park, Calif., and is expected to be completed in July 2020.
