Telos wins USAF Black Core upgrade contract

Ashburn, VA-based Telos Corporation announced on May 7 that it has been awarded a $66.4M contract including option line items to deliver modules and kits with inclusive baseline cybersecurity posture for equipment being provided in support of the Theater Deployable Communications (TDC) Black Core Architecture upgrade.

The TDC provides warfighters with flexible, lightweight and integrated deployable communications equipment. In support of TDC’s Black Core Architecture upgrade, Telos will provide information assurance services required to complete each step of the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF).  This includes identifying, managing and validating system security requirements, and then documenting and submitting the RMF assessment and authorization that will result in an authority to operate.

“We are committed to providing first-class cybersecurity and risk management services to the U.S. Air Force, and have done so for decades,” said Brendan Malloy, senior vice president and general manager, cyber operations and defense at Telos.
