iTrinegy, a leading provider of networked application risk management solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been approved to join the Qinetiq-led Sirius Consortium which is tasked by the United Kingdom MoD’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) with developing solutions to operational requirements identified under the Command, Control, Communications, Computing, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance - Secure Information Infrastructure and Services (CSIIS) Research Consortium.
The research consortium, led by QinetiQ, consists of a consortium (Team Sirius) of over 40 organisations including leading UK Defence industry prime contractors, subject matter experts, non-defence companies and academia. Team Sirius brings together an expert team with the right balance of members, who intend working collaboratively together and closely with Dstl to fulfil MoD’s current and future research requirements in the C4ISR arena.
Team Sirius conducts innovative concept and systems development research across a number of technical disciplines/strands including Networks, Services, Communications, Information Assurance, Knowledge Management, Information Management and Information Exploitation.
“iTrinegy has a proven track record of providing the military and major prime contractors, not just here in the UK, but across the globe, with the expertise and technologies that enables them to test and validate the performance of systems which are reliant on the communication of data over networks to function,” explains Frank Puranik, iTrinegy’s Product Director. “We are proud to contribute this same expertise to the challenges that Team Sirius face in developing solutions for the CSIIS research programme.”
iTrinegy specializes in the development of virtual test networks which enable users to recreate a wide range of networks and data links such as satcomms, wireless & radio and ad-hoc networks as well as creating conditions such as jamming & fade in order to understand, prior to actual deployment, how well systems will perform in potentially hostile environments.
“This is great news, as iTrinegy’s capabilities will enhance those of Team Sirius, ensuring MoD has access to the best S&T possible,” said Helen Carlton, AI2 Programme Manager, Dstl.
"We are pleased to bring iTrinegy on board this major Research Consortium providing important communications, information and security research for Dstl and MoD," commented Sirius Steering Group Chair, Paul Wells, Director of Communications Navigation and ISR for QinetiQ.
