NRO Jarvis

The Problem:

Octo provided development support to the Software Services Platform (S2P) to fulfill NRO Application Service Provider (NASP) requirements. The project, called Jarvis,  required a high level of expertise across multiple engineering domains, innovative software design solutions, Agile software and systems engineering capabilities, and system administrators for new environments.

The Solution:

Octo provided program management, Agile DevSecOps software integration, and cloud systems and security engineering to help create an integrated operational platform within the Ground Enterprise Directorate (GED) Mission Architecture. Coordination with key stakeholders, service providers (developers), service consumers (users and applications), NRO Infrastructure Service Provider (NISP), Commercial Cloud Services (C2S), Intelligence Community Government Cloud (ICGC) and Mission Partners was required as part of this integration effort.

Key Takeaways
  • Octo’s hybrid cloud architecture was resilient and had high availability.
  • Octo’s Agile DevSecOps deployment increased efficiencies while decreasing cost.
  • Octo’s architecture and processes were scalable.

The Benefits

Octo helped reduce duplicate functionality across programs while ensuring consistent deployment pipeline architecture. Since there was minimal cost to host an application on S2P and Agile DevSecOps streamlines processes, Octo operated within budget while meeting NASP requirements. The hybrid cloud infrastructure also allowed maximum utilization of other platform services.
