Rebellion Defense (Rebellion), a leading US defense software company, announced a new contract with the US Navy. Rebellion will provide its Iris software to Sailors to enhance target recognition and tracking capabilities.

From drone strikes in the Red Sea to freedom of navigation operations in the South China Sea, the Navy today must navigate an increasingly complex global security landscape. This contract, which was awarded competitively by the US Navy Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems X (PEO IWS X), underscores the Navy’s commitment to leveraging cutting-edge technology to stay ahead of maritime adversaries.

Rebellion was selected for this opportunity through Tradewinds, a marketplace that helps the Department of Defense more quickly find and procure technology solutions.

“We’re honored that Rebellion Iris software will help keep the Navy ready for current and future threats,” said Ben FitzGerald, Chief Executive Officer at Rebellion Defense. “We’re also excited to have won this opportunity through CDAO’s Tradewinds platform which continues to facilitate rapid innovation and capability development for the DOD.”

Rebellion’s Iris software provides real-time detection, identification, and future-state prediction capabilities. It will enhance the Navy's ability to swiftly detect, track, and identify objects of interest at scale, helping operators make better, faster decisions than manual analysis. Like all Rebellion software, Iris also complies with the Modular Open Systems Approach, giving government full data ownership and complying with PEO IWS X’s mission to deliver modular software capabilities to enhance combat systems.

This partnership marks Rebellion’s second contract win with the US Navy this year. In February, the company announced it would deploy its Mission Engineering team to build custom software for the US Navy’s Project Overmatch, which aims to improve data-driven decision making as part of the Pentagon’s Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control strategy.
