Navy adds small businesses to cyber warfare contract
Four small businesses have won spots on a Navy multiple-award contract to provide a range of cyber warfare related services.
In September, the Navy made awards to several large businesses for the Cyberspace Science Research Engineering and Technology Integration contract.

The companies will compete for work such as technology assessment and development, rapid software development and prototyping, capability training, security engineering and cybersecurity risk management.
The contract has a one year base and one two-year option.
For the small business contract, the Navy received 14 bids for the work.
The large business awards were made in September to:
- Vencore Inc.
- Scientific Research Corp.
- Northrop Grumman
- Booz Allen Hamilton
The contract is used primarily to support the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific and its efforts around cyber warfare.
Deltek estimates the value of the contract at $220 million.
According to solicitation documents, cyber warfare includes computer network operations that encompass cyber-attacks, defense, and exploitation. Information assurance, C4ISR and information operations also fall in the cyber domain.
The Navy wants to use this contract to develop capabilities and technical services to support activities in cyberspace.
