MARLBOROUGH, Mass., July 16 (UPI) -- A cyber maneuvering technology to protect military networks in high threat environments is to be developed by Raytheon under a U.S. Army contract.

The work for the Army program, called Morphing Network Assets to Restrict Adversarial Reconnaissance, involves modifying various aspects and configurations of military networks, hosts and applications in a way that is undetectable and unpredictable.

The modifications would stymie adversaries but still be manageable for network administrators.

"The intent of cyber maneuver is to place computer network defense technology into a proactive state, thereby shifting the advantage away from the attacker," said Jack Donnelly, director of Trusted Network Systems for Raytheon's Network Centric Systems business. "By constantly changing the characteristics of the networks it resides on, MOPRHINATOR provides a more robust and trusted networking solution."

The contract was issued by the U.S. Army's Communications, Electronics, Research, Development and Engineering Center, Space and Terrestrial Communications Directorate.
