ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - ANDRO Computational Solutions, LLC, headquartered in Rome, is part of a multiple-contractor team recently awarded a Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM), Tools and Continuous Monitoring as a Service (CMaaS) contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under prime contractor Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) of Falls Church, Va.

The contract includes a one-year base period and four one-year optional periods for an estimated total contract ceiling value of $6 billion for all companies involved.

The multiple-contractor team consists of approximately 15 small high-tech businesses from across the nation that will collaborate on this effort and share in the funding. ANDRO is the only company from the Utica-Rome area on the team.

The CDM program allows federal and other government agencies to protect the security of their information infrastructure, communication networks, and databases by using continuous monitoring-as-a-service tools and services.

This technology is used to ensure the security and privacy of information by protecting it from malicious sources.

 “We are bringing our niche-level technology as a solution to that contract,” said Andrew L. Drozd, President and Chief Scientist at ANDRO.

As part of the team, ANDRO will offer to the Department of Homeland Security its wireless security solution software that can be installed on wireless devices, particularly those used by the military, to provide continuous monitoring against threats.

Eventually, Drozd said, ANDRO could provide similar service to the consumer market, providing protection for the myriad of wireless devices, such as smartphones, that consumers use today.

ANDRO Computational Solutions, an independently owned company established in 1994, is dedicated to research, development, and the application of advanced computer software for a variety of applications. These include electromagnetic environment effects analyses of complex systems including research and development related to dynamic spectrum management, spectrum exploitation, secure wireless communications for cognitive radios, multisensor and multitarget tracking, advanced radar data fusion, and sensor resource management.

ANDRO is located in the Beeches Professional Campus at One Beeches Place, 7980 Turin Rd. in Rome.
