In September 2020, the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific awarded Forward Slope, Inc. (FSI) a one-year task order under the Command-and-Control Technology and Experimentation (C2&E) IDIQ to provide Software, Data, IT, Cybersecurity, and Cloud Platform Engineering support for the Naval Operational Business Logistics Enterprise (NOBLE) program sponsored by PMW 150 and PEO MLB. The objective of this effort is to obtain a full range of technical and engineering services to assist and support NIWC Pacific to carry out its duties and responsibilities to support the delivery of the unclassified and classified Agile Warfighting Analytics Readiness Environment (AWARE) as well as to provide software and data integration for Navy Tactical Command Support Systems into the NOBLE family of systems (FOS).
The range of services require subject matter expertise in specialized technology and engineering skill sets that match NIWC Pacific’s requirements, to support operations and sustainment as well as software design and development. The Operations and Sustainment Support will include tasking for Engineering Management, Software Maintenance, Data Management, Systems Administration, and Cybersecurity. The Software Design and Development Support will include tasking for software design, software development, data engineering, data analysis, human factors design and integrated data administration.
FSI's Mission Solutions Program Manager, Mr. Jason Mak, stated “FSI appreciates the opportunity to work with NIWC Pacific and PMW 150 to support the NOBLE program. We look forward to supporting Naval operations and logistics through providing improved and automated solutions, leveraging cutting edge technology that includes cloud-based platforms, containerized deployments and orchestration, and streamlined software architecture.”
