The government has awarded a $5.6 million contract to a company called The Internet Engineering Task Force (ITTF) to develop software that would allow students to customize their own learning software, including for the U.S. military.
The ITTF’s software would be used to teach the military how to use its existing programs, including those for cybersecurity and cyber warfare.
It would also be used for the development of new, secure programs, the government announced on Wednesday.
It’s the latest effort to help military students learn computer skills, but many of the programs have been run by government contractors or were made by private companies.
The U.K.-based company, DigitalOcean, won the contract from the U,S.
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in October 2016.
The U’s Defense Advanced Systems Agency (DAVA) also awarded a similar contract to DigitalOcean in September of that year.
DigitalOcean’s software for the Navy and Marine Corps has been developed by an engineering team led by former DARPA program manager John Burt.
The software is being used to train Navy SEALs, the Marine Corps’ special operations forces, and the Air Force.
The Navy has received a $25 million contract.
Burt has been working with DARPA since 2012 to develop digital software for civilian use.
DARPA has a long history of funding the military.
According to the Department of Defense, more than $30 billion was spent on the development and delivery of digital technologies for military and homeland security applications between 2005 and 2020.
The Navy has a program to train officers in computer science and computer engineering.
Burt is also a member of the DARPA Cyber Security and Information Assurance Advisory Board, which was formed in April to advise the military on cyber security and information security.
