CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 26 (UPI) -- The task of developing improvements to the U.S. military's command-and-control systems has been given to Raytheon BBN Technologies.

Raytheon said a $10 million contract for the work was issued under the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Agency's Resilient Command and Control program, which is part of an effort to develop technologies for complex command-and-control information systems.

The program goal is to enhance mission assurance through better situational awareness, greater insight into the impact of changes that occur during missions and adaptive re-planning.

"Government operations rely on large-scale, distributed and complex computer systems to complete their missions successfully," said John Zinky, principal investigator, Raytheon BBN Technologies.

"Under the RC2 program, we will develop technologies to assess and mitigate the mission-related impact of anomalous behavior in these computer systems regardless of cause.

"This ambitious program will contribute to maintaining government and military command-and-control systems' superior performance."

Additional details of the work weren't given.
