Thales : focus sur le système Syracuse IV 

L’Usine Nouvelle consacre un article détaillé au nouveau contrat conclu par la DGA avec Thales, rendu public le 18 février, concernant Syracuse IV (SYstème de RAdioCommunication Utilisant un SatellitE), le réseau qui permet d’assurer l’ensemble des communications militaires entre la France et les unités déployées sur les théâtres d’opérations 24h/24. Dans le cadre de ce contrat, d’un montant de 354 millions d’euros, Thales fournira les 200 antennes satellitaires qui équiperont les navires, les sous-marins et les véhicules blindés de l'armée française. La nouvelle technologie de transmission hautement sécurisée de Thales, baptisée « modem 21 », est au cœur du système Syracuse IV. Ce modem permet d’offrir des communications dix fois plus rapides par rapport à la génération précédente, et donnent la possibilité de réaliser des communications simultanément avec une centaine d’utilisateurs. Elles sont prévues pour résister au brouillage, aux tentatives de déchiffrement, et s’adaptent à la mobilité des militaires sur le terrain. « Les premières stations issues de ces contrats seront livrées à partir de la fin de l’année 2022 », a précisé la DGA dans son communiqué. Plusieurs sites de Thales bénéficieront des retombées liées à cette commande : Cholet (Maine-et-Loire), Gennevilliers (Hauts-de-Seine) et Brive (Corrèze). « Cela va contribuer à sécuriser 800 emplois chez Thales et autant chez nos sous-traitants », précise Marc Darmon, directeur général adjoint en charge de l’activité des systèmes d’information et de communication sécurisés pour Thales.

    The Pentagon wants to ‘reconsider’ its JEDI award decision

    By Andrew Eversden The Department of Defense requested 120 days to “reconsider certain aspects” of its decision to award its controversial enterprise contract to Microsoft. The request from the DoD in a March 12 court filing comes after Court of Federal Claims Judge Patricia Campbell-Smith issued a temporary restraining order directing the Pentagon to stop all work on its Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure cloud contract, after AWS alleged that the DoD made mistakes in its source selection process. The court granted Amazon’s request for an injunction Feb. 13. While Amazon challenged both the technical evaluation and political interference, the court’s decision to impose the injunction rested on AWS’ technical challenges to the DoD selection, which included issues with how the Pentagon considered data storage capabilities. “DoD wishes to reconsider its evaluation of the technical aspects of Price Scenario 6, and intends to issue a solicitation amendment and to accept limited proposal revisions addressing the offerors’ technical approach to that price scenario,” Defense Department lawyers wrote in the document. In the court filing, the DoD also said it wants to reconsider its evaluation of Microsoft and AWS’ online marketplace offerings and “may conduct” clarifications with the two tech giants. The DoD will reconsider other technical challenges presented by AWS, but “does not intend to conduct discussions with offerors or to accept proposal revisions with respect to any aspect of the solicitation,” other than price scenario six of the RFP, which deals with storage capabilities. In a statement, Microsoft spokesperson Frank Shaw said the DoD made the “correct decision.” “However, we support their decision to reconsider a small number of factors as it is likely the fastest way to resolve all issues and quickly provide the needed modern technology to people across our armed forces. Throughout this process, we’ve focused on listening to the needs of the DoD, delivering the best product, and making sure nothing we did delayed the procurement process. We are not going to change this approach now," Shaw said. “Over two years the DoD reviewed dozens of factors and sub factors and found Microsoft equal or superior to AWS on every factor. We remain confident that Microsoft’s proposal was technologically superior, continues to offer the best value, and is the right choice for the DoD.” The JEDI cloud contract is potentially worth $10 billion over 10 years. This court filing is another significant setback for the DoD, even after the continuous challenges the contract has faced for about two years. Earlier in the court battle, Amazon sought to depose President Donald Trump, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, DoD CIO Dana Deasy and several other DoD officials involved in the in the final decision. An Amazon spokesperson said the company was “pleased” with the decision. "We are pleased that the DoD has acknowledged ‘substantial and legitimate’ issues that affected the JEDI award decision, and that corrective action is necessary,” a spokesperson said. "We look forward to complete, fair, and effective corrective action that fully insulates the re-evaluation from political influence and corrects the many issues affecting the initial flawed award.” https://www.federaltimes.com/it-networks/cloud/2020/03/13/the-pentagon-was-to-reconsider-its-jedi-award/
