About TekSynap:

Founded in 2008, TekSynap has been working with government agencies for 15 years—from small start-ups to large government organizations—to help them move faster and achieve their goals by bringing the latest tools and best practices into their organizations. TekSynap is a systems integrator that currently holds 11 contract vehicles and has successfully delivered over 150 prime contracts across critical verticals. The company is passionate about delivering frequent incremental updates that enhance functional value to users and agencies—transforming your mission with a flexible, agile approach to Cloud, Application development, DevSecOps, and automated capabilities.

TekSynap is pleased to be among those awarded a basic ordering agreement (BOA) providing Data Readiness for Artificial Intelligence Development (DRAID) for the DoD Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC). The BOA is a decentralized vehicle that streamlines rapid procurement and agile delivery of AI data readiness capabilities for the #DoD! The streamlined methodologies implemented will benefit both industry and government partners, by increasing competition and flexibility on ceilings for each task order.

The successful use of AI depends critically on the availability of quality data that can be used to build reliable AI-enabled systems. The DRAID vehicle will address the entire data lifecycle, beginning from the collection, through pre-processing, up to before AI system creation. It will also support AI-specific requirements, including unique challenges in operationalizing data for AI. DRAID is also customizable; it enables the selection of a custom subset of AI data readiness services to meet individual needs.

DRAID will be accessible to the DoD and provides an Intellectual Property Flowchart that helps DoD partners draft requirement packages. Additional tools, features, and information will be added to help facilitate the DoD’s ability to deliver rapid and agile AI technologies.

TekSynap, as the prime contractor supporting the Department of the Defense Environment, Safety and Occupational Health Network and Information Exchange (DENIX) program continues to raise the bar in providing leading capabilities. DENIX has achieved many first and outstanding accomplishments over its history. Most recently, during the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Washington DC Summit 2022, the DENIX program was highlighted for our Infrastructure as Code (IaC) implementation. Our partnership with Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Hosting and Compute Center (HaCC) to implement IaC as a project accelerator enhances the program’s security posture and decreases operational costs.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is committed to supporting the mission of our Department of Defense (DoD) customers by providing innovative, efficient, and effective solutions. In support of this commitment, we are announcing the availability of DoD Cloud Infrastructure as Code (IaC) for AWS – a baseline that uses a collection of templates to enable defense mission owners to quickly build out secure, scalable cloud environments. DoD Cloud IaC for AWS is designed to help DoD organizations accelerate cloud adoption and support the rapid delivery of capabilities to the warfighter.

Today, adoption of cloud services in the DoD requires time and resources that may not be readily available due to current mission demands and operational tempo (OPTEMPO). Infrastructure as code (IaC) is a DevOps concept that leverages automation to build out a foundational cloud environment that is ready to be customized to mission-specific requirements, significantly reducing the upfront investment that can slow the adoption of cloud capabilities. DoD Cloud IaC for AWS baseline helps further accelerate the DoD’s cloud adoption by its use of templates that are pre-configured and pre-authorized by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to provide DoD mission owners a secure, approved starting point for their cloud environments.

DoD Cloud IaC for AWS recently received a three-year Authority to Operate (ATO) with conditions from DISA’s Risk Management Executive. The ATO with conditions reduces the assessment and authorization burden for mission owners, to include the inheritance of 103 common controls and 295 control correlation identifiers (CCI) in the Enterprise Mission Assurance Support Services (eMASS) system.

DoD Cloud IaC for AWS also makes it simpler for mission owners to make sure the cloud environment is secure and compliant. DoD Cloud IaC for AWS creates tailored environments with embedded preventative and detective controls that comply with NIST 800-53 and the DoD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide (CC SRG), and provides automated environment assessment and reporting. After deployment, mission owners can have a compliant and secure environment that can be used to deploy mission systems, build software applications, and migrate data.

Recently, the DoD Environment, Safety and Occupational Health Network and Information Exchange (DENIX) was able to accelerate their digital transformation through timely, cost-effective, and secure cloud deployment facilitated by DoD Cloud IaC for AWS.

“The DENIX program sees DoD Cloud Infrastructure as Code for AWS as a digital transformation accelerator,” said Poppy Harrover, program manager at DENIX. “By adopting the preapproved baseline, we reduce our deployment timelines, stay within budget, enhance cybersecurity, and expedite the ATO authorization process. DOD IaC helps transform DENIX into customer focused platform service that enables capabilities delivery at the speed of relevance at the least possible cost.”

Through the use of its pre-configured, pre-authorized templates, DoD Cloud IaC for AWS supports rapid delivery of innovative cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) technologies and capabilities to the warfighter.

Beyond the foundational environment deployments, DoD Cloud IaC for AWS includes a set of DISA-authorized, pre-configured offerings available through the AWS Service Catalog. These services decrease time to operational capability for a wide array of use cases and accelerate mission owners’ deployment of a tailored cloud environment.

DoD Cloud IaC for AWS also provides customers the opportunity to move up the stack and leverage higher level native AWS Managed Services, which increases the number of controls inherited from the cloud services provider.
