Lockheed Martin won a $347 million contract to support the Defense Cyber Crime Center, which is the world’s largest accredited digital forensics lab.
Lockheed has been the center’s prime contractor since 2012 and provides technical, functional and managerial support. The contract was awarded by GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center, known as FEDSIM.
The company will help the center investigate criminal and counterintelligence matters, Lockheed said in a release.
"The cyber threats facing the Department of Defense and our nation are growing in complexity and frequency," said Deon Viergutz, vice president of cyber solutions for Lockheed Martin, in a release.
Among the specific services Lockheed provides are digital and multimedia forensics examination, analysis, development, test and evaluation, information technology, and cyber analytical services. It also provides cyber intelligence to companies that are part of the Defense Industrial Base.
Some of the systems that the Cyber Crime Center supports are the DoD Collaborative Information Sharing Environment (DCISE), the Defense Computer Forensics Laboratory (DCFL), the Defense Cyber Crime Institute (DCCI), and the Defense Cyber Crime Center–Analytical Group (DC3-AG).
The center also works with other parts of the government including DHS, NSA, FBI, the Defense Security Service, and U.S. Cyber Command.
