BAI Defense Engineering Services
BAI applies Scrum Agile software development methodologies and processes within a DevOps Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery environment to deploy state-of-the-art microservices-based solutions for today’s warfighters.
Brandes team members are integral to cross functional Agile Release Trains (ARTs) as Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Developers and Testers. Our contributions include decomposing requirements into actionable tasking, estimating their relative difficulty, and supporting Program Increment and Scrum planning to map tasking to sprint releases.
BAI’s ART team members develop products utilizing a microservices based architecture enabling a continuous release of new and enhanced features to the warfighter while continuing to maintain configuration and release management of the system level capability. Releases are coordinated through the utilization of docker container technology while ensuring code integrity and protection against cyber-attack with twistlock. BAI manages the orchestration of microservices and containers using Kubernetes.
Engineering & Integration
BAI’s proven processes enable innovative ideas to become effective designs and thoroughly vetted solutions for effective deployment and operational use.
Working closely with our customers, BAI applies the System Engineering Transformation strategy to reduce the code to release timeframes on existing processes. BAI also utilizes Model Based System Engineering methodologies with new systems architectures to further reduce the time to field new capability, meeting the objective of Compile to Combat in 24 hours (C2C24). Working within the Scaled Agile Framework enterprise management methodology, BAI’s Release Train Engineers and System Architects work closely with our DevOps Engineers to continuously refine release processes and tools.
BAI engineering teams include specialists with advanced degrees as well as former military operators and aviators to conduct systems integration and testing in Government laboratories to ensure products delivered meet or exceed all user needs.
BAI’s extensive Cybersecurity background assists our clients in protecting critical networks, systems, devices, and data from unauthorized access, ensuring information integrity and availability to enable successful completion of warfighter missions.
BAI’s Cybersecurity expertise spans over two decades of the U.S. Government’s evolutionary cyber information assurance methodologies – from DITSCAP and DIACAP to today’s Risk Management Framework. Applying our thorough understanding of the methodologies and rationale behind these approaches, our Cybersecurity team continues to solve Cybersecurity challenges that arise as new technologies are introduced into our nation’s military IT infrastructure.
BAI’s Cybersecurity team accomplishments include inter-agency approved microcircuit board level implementation of secure communications, multi-level secure WiFi, multi-level secure Virtual Machines and implementation of secure cloud computing environments. Our contributions include cyber risk assessments against non-traditional IT products such as avionics, aircraft communications systems and weapons interfaces; evaluating systems interfaces, non-traditional operating systems, microcircuit board level evaluation, support equipment vector analysis and bench top testing and experimentation.
