Lockheed bags $454m to tool up Pentagon's Cyber Crime Center

Fending off web terrorists isn't cheap, you know

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Lockheed Martin has won a contract worth up to $454m to help the Pentagon with its Cyber Crime Center.

The company will provide support to the Department of Defense's centre, known as DC3, which investigates criminal, counterintelligence and counterterrorism cases and will also offer security support to Defense Industrial Base partners.

“Our industry team provides solutions to address a cyber threat environment that is highly dynamic and growing in volume and complexity,” said Dr Rohan Amin, DC3 programme director for Lockheed Martin, in a canned statement.

“We recognise the uniqueness of the mission and look forward to working with DC3 to address these future challenges.”

General Dynamics, which previously ran the centre, lost out on the contract to Lockheed in January, but filed a protest against the decision with the Government Accountability Office.

The company subsequently dropped its complaint after nabbing a subcontract off Lockheed, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Lockheed will deliver digital and multimedia forensics examination, analysis, research, development, test and evaluation, information technology and cyber analytical services to the DC3. ®
