COLORADO SPRINGS, July 20 (UPI) -- Cyber-security services company root9B will develop and implement cyber-capabilities and technologies to combat terrorism for the U.S. military.

The special warfare technical support work is for the Department of Defense's Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office and comes as a sub-contract from Silverback 7 Inc.


Silverback 7 had won a five-year multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for support with a ceiling value of $48 million for all awardees.

"root9B is committed to working with our partner Silverback7 in the development and delivery of advanced technology and capabilities that enable DOD components, agencies, and international partners to carry out their mission of combating terrorism," said root9B Chief Technology Officer Mike Morris. "We look forward to identifying ways to employ tailored capabilities in support of U.S. military operations."

The CTTSO provides a forum for inter-agency and international users to discuss mission requirements to combat terrorism, prioritize those requirements, fund and manage solutions, and deliver capabilities. As part of its responsibilities it prototypes novel solutions that have been developed and field tested.
