Katerina Figurski

Chantilly, Va. – August 7, 2017 – Vencore, Inc. announced today that its innovative research arm, Vencore Labs, has been awarded a contract from American Electric Power (AEP) to pilot a continuous monitoring service of the utility’s Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).

Under the contract, Vencore Labs will deliver its ground-breaking SecureSmart™ solution, a patented infrastructure monitoring technology for smart grid field networks in two operating companies within AEP. SecureSmart™ will provide a cost-effective monitoring and analysis solution for AEP’s wireless field networks, increasing visibility into system operation and improving the ability to react more quickly to maintain and protect its AMI and distribution automation (DA) systems.

AEP is the first in the industry to explore SecureSmart™ as a monitoring solution across multiple AMI and DA systems from different vendors. SecureSmart™ will help to more efficiently investigate and diagnose recurring system operation issues using the product’s ground truth sensor-based architecture and its comprehensive suite of applications.

SecureSmart™ is an integrated cybersecurity, operations and engineering solution for AMI, Distribution Automation (DA) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. SecureSmart™ is the industry’s only wireless network intrusion detection system that provides real-time network health, anomaly detection, threat analysis and visualization.

Vencore Labs, was selected to present on three Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to a panel of leading scientists, technologists and engineers from the U.S. government at the 2017 Innovators’ Showcase. The showcase is an annual forum for independent research and development (IR&D) hosted by the Intelligence and National Security Alliance (INSA).   

Vencore Labs delivered three out of the four selected presentations in the IoT category. The presentations provided insights from the company’s leading edge research in the emerging IoT areas of telematics, smart grid and low power networks. The Vencore Labs solutions presented government agencies innovative approaches to better achieve their missions and revealed several new opportunities in a rapidly changing technology landscape.

INSA’s Technology and Innovation Council has hosted the Innovators’ Showcase since 2010, in collaboration with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).  The annual exhibition provides a unique forum for the private sector, public-private enterprises and academia to present their innovative IR&D projects to members of the Intelligence Community as well as other agencies that contribute to national security. This year, only 24 abstracts were accepted out of the 110 received, making this the most competitive showcase yet.

Chantilly, VA – June 15, 2017 – Vencore Inc., announced today that its innovative research arm, Vencore Labs, has been awarded a prime contract to provide research and development services in support of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency’s (DARPA) Dispersed Computing (DCOMP) program. Work on the cost-plus-fixed-fee contract will take place in Basking Ridge, New Jersey through 2021 and has a value of $10.3M.

The DCOMP program aims to remedy the cost and latency issues of data computation in a rugged, operational environment where network connectivity and power is limited.  By leveraging dispersed computing systems, the DCOMP program seeks to create software instantiations of protocol stacks and algorithms to improve performance of networks and applications.

Under the contract, Vencore aims to provide DARPA with innovation in network protocols. Specifically the company proposes a solution leveraging programmable network elements that collect in-path network data for analytics and uses these analytics with programmable protocol logic for boosting network performance.

“This work leverages Vencore Labs’ industry-leading expertise in networking and analytics,” said Petros Mouchtaris, Ph.D., president of Vencore Labs. “We look forward to expanding our relationship with DARPA to bring them an innovative solution in support of this important mission.”
