Vencore Labs joins DARPA software development program

Initiative seeks to collectively task computing platforms

A subsidiary of Vencore has joined Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency program to develop software that can help DARPA perform collective tasking functions for computing platforms.

Vencore Labs has received a four-year, $10.3 million contract to build software for DARPA to implement in algorithms and protocol stacks as part of the agency’s Dispersed Computing program.

DARPA announced a four-year, $9.8 million contract to Raytheon’s BBN Technologies subsidiary last week for that business’ participation in the program.

The agency’s goals for Dispersed Computing include the movement of code and data between users and management of heterogeneous computing platforms. Those platforms should also operate in environments with variable and degraded network connections, according to DARPA.

DARPA received 42 offers for the program via an open broad agency announcement.
