NEWPORT NEWS, Va., May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HII announced today that it has signed a Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The three-year SCA formally expands on the existing relationship between AWS and HII, in support of the company’s development and delivery of mission-critical capabilities.

Under the agreement, HII and AWS will collaborate on priority solutions for HII’s defense and intelligence customers, such as digital shipyard transformation, next generation seapower capabilities, warfighter training readiness, commercial space initiatives, and more. These projects will be under the cognizance of Dark Sea Labs, HII’s advanced technology unit overseen by the chief technology officer.

“We’re living in a time of unprecedented technological change and urgency,” HII Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Todd Borkey said. “There is no better time to augment HII’s existing capabilities in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, edge computing, and cloud migration and modernization, to achieve first-time quality in manufacturing and deliver the advantage for HII’s customers across all domains and services.”
