GDIT demos Project Enigma at SSC event

In April, General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) completed a significant in-person milestone demonstration of Project Enigma, the National Security Technology Accelerator (NSTXL), announced May 17. This digital environment will enable industry partners and DoD to collaborate on a shared network with anyone, anywhere, anytime at multiple security levels.

Showcasing to over 200 government stakeholders at the Los Angeles Air Force Base, GDIT successfully established secure connectivity and demonstrated its digital engineering capabilities, software factory and zero-trust solutions in a DoD Impact Level 6 secure cloud environment.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with Space Systems Command to design and deploy an advanced secure technical solution with an exceptional user experience that connects stakeholders across the enterprise to enhance joint lethality,” said Travis Dawson, GDIT Project Enigma senior director.

In January 2023, the Space Enterprise Consortium (SpEC), sponsored by Space Systems Command (SSC) and managed by NSTXL, awarded GDIT $18M to develop the digital environment. Enigma was created in response to the U.S. Space Force’s lack of a mission network that adequately facilitates government and industry collaboration. SSC was further restricted by legacy systems that no longer meet USSF operational, acquisition and training/test mission needs. The digital services ecosystem that is being created through Enigma will further drive resilient, secure information sharing with anyone at any time, which is a critical capability in USSF’s effort to protect our space domain.

Last October, GDIT successfully demonstrated a minimum viable capability of this environment in their first milestone demonstration. Future developments to this program include secure access to multiple security enclaves through a single device and industry partner connectivity. GDIT’S continued success on this project is a direct indicator of how the Other Transaction Authority (OTA) brings capabilities from proposal to prototype demonstration on an accelerated timeline.
