BAE Systems debuts Epiphany to automate production and protection of sensitive U.S. Department of Defense documentation



BAE Systems introduced Epiphany, its information security and risk management framework (RMF) capability, on Monday at the Air Force Association’s Air, Space and Cyber Conference at National Harbor, Maryland.

Epiphany is a highly configurable solution that uses electronic workflows, centralized storage, and smart data optimization features to cut down on hours of labor and documentation and put enterprise data to work to solve agency challenges.

Epiphany is both a process and secure information management solution capable of searching an organization’s historical data and automatically completing many standard compliance documents while safeguarding the processing, storing, and transmission of critical national security and weapon system information.

Epiphany’s detailed document repository stores all relevant project information to manage document version control, while tracking the status of all reviews and approvals in real-time. Epiphany’s customizable framework also features an easy to use workflow guide for creating new process document templates.

Once these user-generated templates are added to Epiphany’s library, the completion of future reports using the new templates can also be automated using its built-in smart data capabilities.

BAE Systems delivers a range of solutions and services enabling militaries and governments to carryout their missions. The company provides large-scale systems engineering, integration, and sustainment services across air, land, sea, space, and cyber domains. BAE Systems takes pride in its support of national security and those who serve.

“After just a few minutes of answering common organizational process questions, Epiphany can begin automating an organization’s most complex and time consuming processes, including the completion of detailed regulatory paperwork,” said Pete Trainer, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Air Force Solutions business. “The solution meets Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement security standards and is ready for use in stand-alone, cloud, or public facing environments.”

BAE Systems also signed a cooperative agreement with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) for Phase 1 of a technical effort to transition gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductor technology developed by the U.S. Air Force to its Advanced Microwave Products (AMP) Center. As part of the effort, BAE will transfer and further enhance technology, and scale it to 6-inch wafers to slash per-chip costs and improve the accessibility of this defense-critical technology.

GaN technology provides broad frequency bandwidth, high efficiency, and high transmit power in a small footprint, making it ideal for next-generation radar, electronic warfare, and communications systems. Under the agreement, BAE will work with AFRL to establish a 140-nanometer GaN monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) process that will be qualified for production by 2020, with products available to Department of Defense (DoD) suppliers through an open foundry service.
