(NYSE: PRSP), announced today that its innovative research arm, Perspecta Labs, played an integral role in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Liberty Eclipse Phase II exercise in collaboration with the Department of Energy and the Department of Homeland Security to test grid recovery tools during a staged, multi-faceted cyberattack on a U.S. power grid. The event took place on Plum Island, N.Y.

The realistic exercise actually replicated a cyberattack and monitored its recovery in real-time. Liberty Eclipse Phase II is the fourth and largest thus far in a series of exercises under DARPA’s Rapid Attack Detection Isolation and Characterization Systems (RADICS) research program. The RADICS objective was to develop technologies for detecting and responding to cyberattacks on critical U.S. infrastructure, with an ultimate goal of enabling cyber and power engineers the ability to restore electrical service within seven days in the event of a major attack.

“We are proud to have played such a significant role in this critical exercise,” said Mac Curtis, president and CEO of Perspecta. “At Perspecta, we are driven by a passion for innovation, which fueled our research lab, Perspecta Labs. It is through exercises like this that we are able to transform our research into real solutions to not only solve our customers’ most unique and complex challenges, but keep our nation safe as well.”

During the seven day exercise, performers on the RADICS program were tasked with using performer-developed tools to provide comprehensive grid situational awareness, restore supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and network infrastructure, cleanse substations and defeat active adversaries to establish two diverse paths in order to re-energize, interconnect and synchronize two utility operators in a black start scenario. 

“Our experience with developing solutions to protect the power grid gave us unique qualifications to support DARPA during this exercise,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Perspecta Labs.  “As leaders in cybersecurity awareness, monitoring and assessment services, we were able to validate the success of our research and tools while assisting our customer, DARPA, in achieving this major program milestone.”

In the exercise, Perspecta Labs tested various technologies transitioning to commercial use under the company’s SecureSmart offering, including: the SHERLOC cyber-weapon hunting system featuring a new grid state consistency analyzer called Jolt that integrates ground truth feeder state from Advanced Meter Infrastructure as a telemetry source; and the MANTESSA cyber-physical early detection and situational awareness system, featuring novel machine intelligence techniques and statistical inference of out-of-band measurements, field reports and other data sources. Perspecta Labs also supported BAE Systems on the set up of a Secure Emergency Network. The company’s Distributed Assured and Dynamic Configuration (DADC) tool was used to efficiently generate error-free configurations for that network.

As a result of the exercise, the Perspecta Labs team gained actionable insight from utilities, observers and participants to improve the usability, expand the capabilities and continue the transition of its SHERLOC and MANTESSA solutions. As a leader in smart grid security and monitoring, the company has been a major contributor on the RADICS program, conducting research and delivering technologies in three of five technical areas for situational awareness, secure communications, and threat detection and characterization.

Chantilly, Va.— Nov. 15, 2018— Perspecta Inc., announced today that its innovative research arm, Perspecta Labs, has entered into a partnership with Abaco Systems, Inc. (Abaco), to bring its 1553 Bus Defender™ product to market.

Warfighting systems are built for longevity and require a sophisticated means of communication, but with that comes advanced vulnerabilities. The 1553 Bus Defender solution from Perspecta Labs, developed on a Department of Defense (DoD) research program, protects weapons systems from both known and future cyberattacks.

Specifically, the MIL-STD-1553 (1553) data bus, designed long before the days of widespread computer network hacking, and the line-replaceable units (LRUs) on it are vulnerable to cyberattacks. Depending on the scope and nature of the compromise, adversaries can cause denial of service (DoS), exfiltration of critical data, neutralization or destruction of the warfighting system, loss of life, and mission failure. 1553 Bus Defender provides protection without requiring any modifications to LRUs – a key advantage over software-based approaches.

“At Perspecta Labs, we pride ourselves on our ability to invent answers to our customers’ hardest problems,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Perspecta Labs. “We have built a strong reputation of putting our proven innovations to work in the real-world, and we look forward to the opportunity to do that with a strong partner like Abaco by our side.”

“In our discussions with the DoD, the DoD has made it clear to us that it sees our primary role as being to deliver advanced technologies – especially in the area of cybersecurity – into the hands of our warfighters as quickly as possible,” said Rich Sorelle, CEO, Abaco Systems. “That’s what makes this partnership with Perspecta so exciting. 1553 Bus Defender is precisely the kind of solution our armed forces need, and it’s a privilege to be working on it.”

Prototype 1553 Bus Defender devices have been successfully tested in DoD system integration labs. Perspecta Labs and Abaco are now working together to transition the technology for widespread use. Abaco’s expertise in the design and production of rugged embedded computing hardware across a variety of form factors will ensure that the 1553 Bus Defender devices meet all critical size, weight, power, security and cost requirements.

Prototypes are currently available for demonstration and the two companies are actively reviewing and identifying opportunities for field testing of the 1553 Bus Defender capability.
