The Defense Intelligence Agency disclosed the winner of a “significant” IT modernization contract it announced this week: Washington, D.C.-based cybersecurity firm Invictus.
The contract is to modernize the top-secret Joint Worldwide Intelligence Collection System, or JWICS. DIA announced the deal Wednesday, but did not initially reveal the winning company. It’s the largest investment ever made in the network used by the intelligence community and the Department of Defense to transmit sensitive information, agency officials said. The DIA, which provides the U.S. Department of Defense with information about foreign countries’ military capabilities, manages it.
