US: Lockheed Martin is planning to support the Navy system that allows secure sharing of sensitive data between unclassified and classified security domains. The US Navy recently awarded Lockheed Martin two contracts with a total ceiling value of USD 90 million to support the Radiant Mercury cross domain solution for five years. While guarding classified data from unauthorised access, the system simultaneously allows those with the appropriate security classification to retrieve sensitive and critical information. Radiant Mercury supports simultaneous data flows to hundreds of channels, interfaces with most major C4ISR systems, and supports most transport, network and data link protocols.
Used by both US and allied partners at more than 400 sites worldwide, Radiant Mercury has streamlined the process of sharing critical operational and intelligence information with coalition forces. Radiant Mercury is believed to be compliant with the Intelligence Community Directive 503 policy, which protects sensitive compartmented information within information systems. It is also approved for both top secret and secret interoperability by the Unified Cross Domain Services Management Office, which lists systems verified to transfer Department of Defence and intelligence community information between multiple security domains with limited risk. Radiant Mercury is available on the US General Services Administration schedule of products and services.
