Rebellion Defense Awarded Contract to Support US Navy Project Overmatch

Rebellion Defense will deploy its Mission Engineering team to rapidly build custom software for U.S. Navy Project Overmatch, kickstarting the firm’s contributions to meet critical CJADC2 objectives

WASHINGTON--()--Rebellion Defense, a leading U.S. defense software and services company, today announced its partnership with U.S. Navy Project Overmatch. Rebellion Defense will deliver Project Overmatch cutting-edge technology and custom software solutions through its Mission Engineering service offering.

With this new partnership, Rebellion Defense will support the U.S. Navy’s need for agile software by integrating its engineers and operators into the fabric of Project Overmatch. Rebellion Defense will demonstrate proof of concept opportunities to add speed, automation, and cognitive benefits to analysts, decision-makers, and warfighters.

The Navy’s Project Overmatch, characterized by Former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday as “the bedrock for the joint tactical network of the future,” is a top-priority initiative aimed at improving data-driven decision-making as part of the Navy's contribution to the Pentagon's Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control (CJADC2) strategy.

“Rebellion Defense is eager to assist the Navy in optimizing its software capabilities and to support the Navy’s contributions to the Pentagon's Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control strategy,” said Ben FitzGerald, Chief Executive Officer at Rebellion Defense. “In this era of software-defined defense, secure and trusted human-machine teaming is critical. This contract underscores Rebellion's commitment to practical and responsible AI, user-centered software, fast outcomes, and collaboration.”

Rebellion Defense is operating under a subcontract agreement with Fuse, a warfighter-focused engineering and design firm, under its prime contract from Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR). The task order’s deliverables will contribute to the Navy’s mission to enhance data-driven decision-making.

This contract with U.S. Navy Project Overmatch comes at an exciting moment of expansion for Rebellion Defense, with the company recently announcing a DISA Impact Level 5 Provisional Authorization for Rebellion Nova and partnerships with the Army and the National Nuclear Security Administration.
