VES (Vidovich Engineering Solutions) is excited to announce that it has been awarded a two year, multi-phase Consortium for Command, Control, and Communications in Cyberspace (C5) contract to build and deliver the Ground Vehicle Operating System (GVOS). This work will be done for Program Executive Officer (PEO) Ground Combat Systems (GCS), along with US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Armaments Center, Weapons and Software Engineering Center (WSEC) Picatinny Arsenal, NJ.
GVOS is a Government off the Shelf (GOTS) Linux Operating System for platform embedded computers. The long-term benefits of this innovative approach include substantially reduced licensing costs, reduced OS attack surface, greatly improved use of system resources, enhanced system performance, greater supportability and adaptability, and a much longer OS service life.
The scope of this Task Order covers many Software development areas including: requirements specification, design, test, establishing and maintaining the build environment, delivering prototype builds for target architectures, cyber security hardening and analysis, supporting OEM functionality assessments, and delivering integration procedure documentation.
VES is a small business based out of Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. Established in 2014, our core competencies are the development of custom Government off the Shelf (GOTS) infrastructure software, application and architecture development, and rapidly prototyping emerging technologies to address persistent tactical architecture challenges. VES is a company built entirely of engineers, pursuing a mission to efficiently solve the DoD’s hardest Software and Systems Integration challenges.
