Intelligent Waves (IW), a leading tech integrator that delivers mission-focused multi-domain operational expertise and innovation to the government through high-impact technology solutions, is proud to announce it was named a finalist in the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s 21st Annual Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards in the Contractor of the Year category. These awards honor innovative companies, industry heavyweights and long-time pillars in the government contracting community for their commitment to excellence and role in shaping the marketplace.

As a result of Intelligent Waves’ introduction of innovative and disruptive cybersecurity technologies, including GRAYPATH (GP) and Phantom for the U.S Department of Defense and Intelligence Community, it has been awarded this honor.

New Innovative Technologies:

1) Crowd-Sourced Flight Data (CSFD), the 59th TES’ revolutionary program that changes the game. As demand surges for edge-fighter data that shapes the battlespace for advantage, CSFD enables rapid electronic warfare programming, improves data-driven debriefs, informs cyber intelligence and operational analysis, and aids rapid software development. 

2) GRAYPATH (GP) is the next generation of expeditionary communications. Through its patented IP Spread Spectrum technology, GP leverages the cloud to randomize and distribute message packets through the simultaneous use of multiple transport paths and encrypted channels. GP algorithms optimize throughput by continuously sensing and adjusting the message flow according to channel availability and bandwidth capacity creating a smoother connection even for HD video transmissions. GP dramatically lowers the risk of detection and interception and is nearly impervious to disruption.

3) PHANTOM NEXT GENERATION provides the ability for organizations to access foreign points of presence to conduct remote open-source information gathering and research while at the same time protecting organizations and individuals from exposure to foreign intelligence. Intelligent Waves has achieved this by combining the GRAYPATH software-defined obfuscated network with the managed attribution capability of the Phantom platform in a secure but unclassified package.

Intelligent Waves’ culture is defined by its DNA of trust, innovative thinking, commitment to the mission, integrity, and a fervent desire to achieve a higher impact for customers and the community. It is fortified by the diversity of its body of employees that bring their unique perspectives, life experiences, and ideas to the table, creating an inspiring environment where meritorious behavior is rewarded, accountability and transparency are core operational principles.
