Agile Defense tapped for unclassified IT services

June 7 (UPI) — Agile Defense was awarded a contract from the Defense Department on Wednesday for unclassified information technology services.

While the contract award from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency does not provide any specific details on the work Agile Defense will be doing, the company specializes in services ranging from private cloud engineering and risk management framework to artificial intelligence enhanced cybersecurity and information technology engineering.

The contract is valued at more than $30.4 million, which is a modification to a previous Pentagon contract. The modification surges the total cumulative value to more than $128.9 million, according to a Pentagon press release.

Work on the contract will occur in Arlington, Va., and is expected to be complete in June 2019.

More than $12 million will be obligated to Agile Defense at time of award.
