HII, AWS announce strategic collaboration

On May 15, McLean, VA-based HII announced that it has signed a Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The three-year SCA formally expands on the existing relationship between AWS and HII, in support of the company’s development and delivery of mission-critical capabilities.

Under the agreement, HII and AWS will collaborate on priority solutions for HII’s defense and intelligence customers, such as digital shipyard transformation, next generation seapower capabilities, warfighter training readiness, commercial space initiatives, and more. These projects are overseen by HII’s chief technology officer, within the advanced technology unit known as Dark Sea Labs.

“We’re living in a time of unprecedented technological change and urgency,” HII Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Todd Borkey said. “There is no better time to augment HII’s existing capabilities in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, edge computing, and cloud migration and modernization, to achieve first-time quality in manufacturing and deliver the advantage for HII’s customers across all domains and services.”

The agreement will evolve HII’s and AWS’ relationship into one of creative solution shaping. Previous HII relationships with AWS will be superseded by a centralized engagement under an executive champion.
