BBN Technologies has awarded subcontract awards totaling $12 million for 29 academic/industrial research teams to build, integrate and begin to operate the first prototypes of the GENI suite of network research infrastructure. GENI prototyping is sponsored by the National Science Foundation to support experimental research in network science and engineering.
BBN Technologies has been awarded $8.9 million in funding by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency under the third phase of the disruption tolerant networking (DTN) program. The DTN program's primary goal is to develop and field network services that deliver critical information reliably. Under this latest award, BBN will integrate the DTN system into fielded military networks that may combine several types of nodes, including wireless, satellite and vehicle-mounted.
BBN Technologies has been awarded $4.4 million in funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the scalable network monitoring program in a contract administered by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). BBN Technologies will develop novel, scalable attack detection algorithms; a flexible and extensible architecture for implementing and deploying the algorithms; and an execution environment for traffic inspection, feature extraction and algorithm execution.
BBN Technologies is receiving a $73,845,000 contract by the U.S. Army Project Manager Robotics and Unmanned Sensors to deliver spare parts, training services and Boomerang systems, which immediately alert U.S. forces to the occurrence of hostile incoming fire and pinpoint the location of the enemy shooter.
