General Dynamics Awarded Air Force Cyber Intelligence Contract

FAIRFAX, Va. – Gen­er­al Dynam­ics Advanced Infor­ma­tion Sys­tems was award­ed a con­tract to con­tin­ue its cyber net­work defense, oper­a­tions and exploita­tion sup­port of the U.S. Air Force’s 35th Intel­li­gence Squadron (35IS) Cyber­space Oper­a­tions pro­gram Sen­sor Shad­ow. The con­tract has a max­i­mum val­ue of $5 mil­lion over three years if all options are exer­cised. Gen­er­al Dynam­ics Advanced Infor­ma­tion­al Sys­tems is a busi­ness unit of Gen­er­al Dynam­ics (NYSE: GD).

“The Sen­sor Shad­ow pro­gram is rep­re­sen­ta­tive of our cyber secu­ri­ty her­itage. For two decades Gen­er­al Dynam­ics has been pro­vid­ing lead­ing-edge cyber intel­li­gence sup­port to the Air Force through Sen­sor Shad­ow, dat­ing back to Oper­a­tion Desert Storm,” said John Jol­ly, vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er of Gen­er­al Dynam­ics Advanced Infor­ma­tion Sys­tems’ Cyber Sys­tems divi­sion. “Our close part­ner­ship with the 35IS allows us to effec­tive­ly apply our mis­sion under­stand­ing and in-depth exper­tise in the cyber domain to bring more capa­bil­i­ty to the cyber ana­lyst toolset for more effec­tive and time­ly analy­sis.”

Through this con­tract Gen­er­al Dynam­ics’ ana­lysts and engi­neers help to col­lect, ana­lyze, pro­duce and dis­sem­i­nate vital cyber intel­li­gence to ensure the warfight­er main­tains infor­ma­tion dom­i­nance in the cyber domain. This includes sup­port­ing the U.S. Cyber Com­mand and oth­er Depart­ment of Defense cus­tomers. The Sen­sor Shad­ow pro­gram team con­ducts in-depth analy­sis of net­work intru­sions, threat pro­fil­ing, all source intel­li­gence analy­sis and long-term analy­sis of stored net­work con­nec­tion data and sup­ports oper­a­tions across the globe.

The work in this con­tract will be per­formed at Lack­land Air Force Base, Texas.
