Project will Allow Senior Leaders to Carry One Government Approved Device for Both Personal and DoD Communication
Reston, VA (December 18, 2019) – Intelligent Waves LLC, an end-to-end information technology government solutions provider, announced the Department of the Interior, Interior Business Center has awarded it a $43 million Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase III contract. These contracts are part of a highly competitive U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) initiative.
With this new SBIR contract, Intelligent Waves will provide pre-production implementation of Hypori Virtual Mobile Infrastructure (VMI) capability. The project will ensure separation of personal data and government data for Department of Defense (DoD) users. Using Intelligent Wave’s technology, a DoD end-user can employ a single device over black (uncontrolled), gray (single encryption), and red (classified) network environments with no data from those environments ever touching the end-user’s device. “This is a revolution in the way service members and government officials communicate.,” said Jared Shepard, President and CEO of Intelligent Waves.
Hypori VMI Implementation
During this initiative, Intelligent Waves will support Hypori VMI implementation for two government agencies. The first agency the SBIR Phase III award will support is the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Emerging Technologies (EM) Directorate. The Hypori VMI SBIR Phase III effort will extend the prototype developed within a commercial data center by building on the existing research and development performed during phases I and II.
The second agency is the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T). Under DHS direction, Intelligent Waves will establish an evaluation environment which will allow DHS-sponsored government customers to conduct Hypori-as-a-Service end-user evaluations. The environment will allow unclassified mobile devices used by government entities conducting capability evaluations to have program access.
Over the past two years, DHS S&T, DISA, and the Air Force Research Lab have supported SBIR Phase I and II research and development projects using Hypori VMI. Phase III’s work with Intelligent Waves gets the DoD one step closer to implementing the classified environment.
