KEYW Announces Award of $38 Million Prime Contract to Provide Cyber Training and Infrastructure Upgrades

HANOVER, Md., March 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The KEYW Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW), announced today it has received a prime contract to provide advanced cyber training content development, delivery, and training infrastructure upgrades to a U.S.-based customer. The infrastructure upgrade will be based on KEYW's Ginkgo Cyber Learning Management Environment (C-LME). The single-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract comprises a one-year base period of performance with a one-year option and a ceiling value of $38 million.

"We are pleased to continue expanding our cyber training efforts within the U.S. with this new award," commented Len Moodispaw, CEO and President of KEYW Corporation. "As many are aware, KEYW has long provided advanced cyber training programs to our customers, and with this award, we look forward to continuing that tradition and building on KEYW's reputation as a premier provider of advanced cyber training solutions."

Ginkgo is a unique learning environment that combines traditional learning management (testing, content objects, grading, etc.) with new cyber training-specific functionality. Using Ginkgo, student progress is tracked and aligned with course-specific learning objectives, allowing the customer to have real-time insight into student performance. The Ginkgo ecosystem includes proprietary modules that enable it to work with the organization's IT infrastructure to schedule and deploy virtual resources for classroom scenarios and evaluations. It also facilitates the grading of interactions on these virtualized systems and networks, automating the process of evaluating a student's hands-on performance and including it as a gradable object.
