Chantilly, Va.— November 13, 2019--Perspecta Inc. (NYSE: PRSP), announced today that its innovative applied research arm, Perspecta Labs, received a Project Agreement through an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with Consortium Management Group, Inc.

On this program, Perspecta Labs will implement and evaluate an INPP solution that delivers significant improvements to NetOps for the tactical portion of the Department of Defense Information Network for the Army. Specifically, the company will develop and demonstrate an INPP solution with software modularity, simplified workflows and visualization to deliver significant advantages in ease of use, flexible operations and reduced training.
