DULLES, Va., Feb. 7 (UPI) -- A project to help U.S. government agencies plan, execute and assess cyberwarfare operations is receiving support from Raytheon, the company said.

Plan X, as it is called, is a cyberwarfare program of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Agency.

As part of the project, Raytheon will conduct research and development work to help the Department of Defense execute cyberwarfare operations with accurate and assessable results, the company said.

"When supporting our customers' missions, we can help assess the results of launching missiles or any weapons in other domains -- land, air, sea or space," said Jack Harrington, vice president of cybersecurity and special missions within Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Raytheon is working to provide the same mission confidence to the cyber domain through our work with DARPA's Plan X."
