Virtualization has the potential to increase cyber resiliency for Navy combat systems by providing flexible system configurations that can adapt to degraded performance conditions. Vendor and combat system agnostic virtual resource management and performance analysis tools are necessary to reach this potential. Innovative Defense Technologies (IDT) designs, develops and delivers solutions that enable the rapid delivery of warfare capabilities for the DOD. A sustained competitive advantage is achieved through vendor-agnostic management of virtual resources and reliable, real-time performance assessment capability that is normalized on system events, configurable to any combat system. This technology will be applied to AEGIS and SSDS to validate the innovation by 2021, available for transition to government and contractors desiring to leverage virtualization for increased cyber resiliency.
Innovative Defense Technologies’ (IDT) Automated Verifcation & Validation (V&V) for Distributed Testing (ADT) supports the definition and testing of complex system of system (SoS) interface requirements with a focus on leveraging existing infrastructure, resources, and subject matter expertise from distributed test environments. IDT has developed Automated Test and Re-Test (ATRT), which is an enabling technology for ADT, founded on the patented model based systems engineering approach that accelerates the deployment of software capability to the fleet. ADT is initially supporting testing of SQQ-89 to Aegis baseline 9, however the tool suite was built to be used by any complex system that requires V&V of system of system interfaces. IDT seeks collaboration with government programs with complex, software/data intensive SoS that require distributed test and analysis capability.
