Raytheon scores $9M in contracts to support power grid cybersecurity

Raytheon BBN Technologies has won a number of contracts totaling $9 million to research and develop technologies that will detect and respond to cyber attacks on the U.S. power grid infrastructure.

The contracts were awarded under the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization Systems program.

Under the contract, Raytheon BBN Technologies will create technologies to enhance situational awareness by providing early warning of an impending attack and detecting adversary spoofing of power grid data collection and communication, the company said in a release.

These technologies will also maintain situational awareness in the immediate aftermath of an attack.

The company also said that it will examine methods to maintain secure emergency communication networks in the aftermath of an attack.
