Northrop Grumman Corp. has established an Army Knowledge Online/Defense Knowledge Online (AKO/DKO) Emerging Technologies Lab in McLean, VA, with the aim of delivering Web-based capabilities and services to warfighters and other users with greater speed, reliability, and security. AKO and DKO provide secure e-mail, file storage and management, instant messaging, directory services, and collaboration tools to active and reserve service members, family members of deployed personnel, retirees, and other U.S. Department of Defense personnel. Northrop Grumman and its team will use the lab to evaluate, integrate, and demonstrate emerging technologies and capabilities before they are implemented on the AKO/DKO enterprise portal. The team's priorities include examining new means of authentication for users to improve security against constant threats. The team will also prototype means to deliver information into the hands of mobile warfighters who are using mobile devices with small screens.
