The US Air Force has awarded HII’s Mission Technologies a contract to provide information-sharing capabilities to the Five Eyes intelligence alliance comprised of the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK.
Under the contract, HII will leverage advanced technologies for three years to maintain “seamless collaboration” for the alliance under the “Pegasus” program.
Overseen by the air force’s Concept, Development and Management Mission Partner Capability Office, the Pegasus initiative enables secure data exchange between the US military and its mission partners.
Work for the project includes the supply of phone, email, chat, and video solutions. General Dynamics Information Technology will serve as a major subcontractor for the contract.
“Pegasus is an important capability that will help US military forces and Five Eyes members with critical war planning and execution,” Mission Technologies’ Cyber, Electronic Warfare and Space President Grant Hagen stated.
