CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Raytheon multiple contracts to research and develop technologies that will detect and respond to cyber attacks on the U.S. power grid infrastructure. The contracts, which total $9 million, were awarded under DARPA's Rapid Attack Detection, Isolation and Characterization Systems program.

"During the last two decades, industrial control systems have evolved so that most are now connected to the Internet, making them vulnerable to cyber attack," said Jason Redi, vice president for the Raytheon BBN Technologies Networking and Communications unit. "A significant power disruption would have profound economic and human costs in the U.S, so our goals are to prevent attacks and to reduce the time required to restore power after an attack."

Raytheon BBN will create technologies to enhance situational awareness by providing early warning of an impending attack and detecting adversary spoofing of power grid data collection and communication. These technologies will also maintain situational awareness in the immediate aftermath of an attack.

The company will also examine methods to maintain secure emergency communication networks in the aftermath of an attack. Raytheon BBN's approach seeks to isolate affected organizations from the Internet and establish a secure emergency network to coordinate power restoration without depending on external networks.

Raytheon BBN Technologies is a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company.

ROTA, Spain - Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Carney (DDG 64) returned to Naval Station Rota, Spain, Dec. 2, completing its second forward-deployed ballistic missile defense patrol in the U.S. 6th fleet area of operations.

Carney is one of four guided-missile destroyers to be forward-deployed to Rota, Spain, in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe.

"I could not be prouder of Carney and her Sailors. Over the course of the last four months, this ship has literally saved lives, assisting in the rescue of 97 migrants adrift in the Mediterranean Sea; we have reinforced strategic partnerships through exercises with Romania, Turkey, and Bulgaria; and we have taken the fight to those who threaten our nation through participation in Operation Odyssey Lightning. The ship gets the credit, but it's the Sailors of 'Carney Nation' that made it happen," said Cmdr. Peter Halvorsen, Commanding Officer, USS Carney.

"With more than 20 years in the Navy, I can honestly say that I have never been more impressed with the attitude, motivation, and professionalism of Carney Sailors. The crew's ability to always be flexible and attack any challenge that comes their way is a true measure of the quality of today's Navy Sailors. I am privileged to be a part of their Navy and honored to have the responsibility of leading them every day!" according to Master Chief Petty Officer Gary Rosenbaum, Command Master Chief, USS Carney.

Carney left for this second patrol July 25.

On July 29, Carney assisted in the rescue of 97 migrants in a small craft in the Mediterranean Sea.

Carney was attached to the Wasp Amphibious Ready Group during Operation Odyssey Lightning and directly supported operations conducted against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) targets in Sirte, Libya.

Carney conducted an at-sea change of command ceremony where Cmdr. Peter Halvorsen relieved Cmdr. Ken Pickard as commanding officer Nov. 5.

Many Sailors aboard Carney reached a new milestone in their careers while on patrol. Thirty-one enlisted Sailors and one officer were promoted. Two officers earned their surface warfare officer pins, one officer earned her surface warfare Supply Corps officer pin, and 36 Sailors earned their enlisted surface warfare specialist pins.

While on patrol, Carney conducted 12 strait transits, more than seven small-boat operations, and nine replenishment-at-sea evolutions with ships from the Military Sealift Command and Spanish navy.

Carney conducted flight operations with the Wasp ARG, and the Spanish and Turkish navies.

Carney participated in SMARTEX-162, an integrated maritime training exercise with the Spanish navy, and Exercise Mavi Balina 16 -- a Turkish led, multinational anti-submarine warfare exercise.

Carney's port visits included Rota, Spain; Souda Bay, Greece; Piraeus, Greece; and Aksaz, Turkey.

Carney is the fourth Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer to be forward deployed to Rota, Spain, in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe.

U.S. 6th Fleet, headquarted in Naples, Italy, conducts the full spectrum of joint and naval operations, often in concert with allied, joint, and interagency partners in order to advance U.S. national interests, security and stability in Europe and Africa.
