Other Transaction Authority (OTA) Consortia

Perspecta is an active member of the following consortia:

Consortium for Command, Control, and Communications in Cyberspace (C5) C5 is a nonprofit consortium composed of leading companies and institutions in the C4ISR and cyber technology domains. Unlike other OTA consortia, C5 serves as both the consortium manager and contract administrator, providing an independent, transparent single interface between members and the government.

The scope of C5 encompasses all of the following:  Offensive and Defensive Cyberspace Operations, Situational Understanding, C4ISR and Targeting, System of Systems Architecture, Tactical and Strategic Networks, Enterprise Systems, Software and Hardware Technologies, Systems Integration, Electronic Warfare, Positioning, Navigation and Timing, Information Operations, Intelligence Analysis, Exploitation and Dissemination, Mobility, Autonomy and Sensors.

The System of Systems Consortium (SOSSEC)
The Consortium was formed to address the needs of the Department of Defense (DoD). It is founded on a simple concept: that collaboration, innovation and cooperation among a broad spectrum of industry, academia and nonprofits vastly improves the products and services delivered to its clients. This concept, combined with a competitive environment among Consortium membership, supported by quality oversight by SOSSEC, Inc., ensures low-risk, lowest-cost and the best-of-breed delivery of prototype solutions to our clients. 

The SOSSEC Consortium provides technical performance of research and development as well as prototype development to address the needs of the C4ISR, Cyber, and Homeland Defense communities primarily within the Department of Defense.

National Spectrum Consortium (NSC)
A spectrum industry consortium collaborating with multiple government agencies through a 5 year, $1.25 Billion, Section 815 Prototype Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Emerging Capabilities and Prototyping (ODASD, EC&P).  Membership to NSC includes representatives from large and small businesses, “non-traditional” contractors, academic research institutions and not-for-profit organizations.

Army CERDEC Sensors, Communications and Electronics Consortium (SCEC) Initiative
The Sensors, Communications and Electronics Consortium (SCE Consortium) was created to conduct research, development, and testing in cooperation with the Government, leading to technology demonstrations and prototype projects in the sensors, communications and electronics sciences and other related fields to maintain and improve warfighter command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities in complex environments.
