Innovative Defense Technologies (IDT) Participates in Virtual Event for Sea-Air-Space 2020

Discusses Cyber Resiliency via Virtualization at U.S. Navy Forum for SBIR/STTR Transition

This month, the U. S. Navy Forum for SBIR/STTR Transition (FST) hosted a virtual marketplace featuring presentations by members of several Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II companies. The event, originally scheduled to take place live at the Sea-Air-Space 2020 expo (April 6-8, 2020), shifted to a virtual format due to coronavirus concerns.

Described as “the Navy’s Premier Small Business Technology Showcase”, the Virtual Transition Marketplace features recorded Tech Talks by a variety of SBIR Phase II companies, including Innovative Defense Technologies (IDT). The company designs, develops and delivers solutions that enable the rapid delivery of warfare capabilities for the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). At this event, IDT representatives discussed a cyber resiliency capability for virtualized combat systems.

In brief, virtualization has the potential to increase cyber resiliency for Navy combat systems by providing flexible system configurations that can adapt to degraded performance conditions. Vendor and combat system agnostic virtual resource management and performance analysis tools are necessary to reach this potential.

IDT’s solutions enable a sustained competitive advantage through vendor agnostic management of virtual resources and reliable, real-time performance assessment capability that is normalized on system events and are configurable to any combat system.

This technology will leverage virtualization to increase the resiliency of combat systems and will be applied to AEGIS and SSDS to validate the innovation by 2021. It can be extended to any combat system and will be available for transition to government and contractors desiring to leverage virtualization for increased cyber resiliency.

IDT’s presentation, Cyber Resiliency via Virtualization for Combat Systems, is one of several  located on the U.S. Navy FST event page, which may be found here.
