AFRL expands SSA award ceiling

On August 11, the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) posted an updated version of its Space Situational Awareness (SSA) broad agency announcement. For best consideration, AFRL recommends that white papers be submitted by January 2, 2023.

The focus of this BAA is to research, develop, demonstrate, integrate, test and deliver innovative technologies associated with tasking, collection, processing, exploitation, analysis and dissemination of data and information in support of Space Situation Awareness (SSA), characterization, and assessment of space related events. In addition, the BAA will develop techniques that provide avenues to leverage new sensor technology, High-Performance Computational SSA, expertise and applications from the ground, orbital and cyber intelligence assessment perspectives to attain an integrated, predictive SSA perspective.

Total funding for this BAA is approximately $99.9M. Individual awards will not normally exceed 48 months with dollar amounts normally ranging from $450K to $5M. There is also the potential to make awards up to any dollar value as long as the value does not exceed the available BAA ceiling amount. Multiple Awards are anticipated.

Dialogue between prospective offerors and Government representatives is encouraged. Technical and contracting questions can be resolved in writing or through open discussions. Discussions with any of the points of contact shall not constitute a commitment by the Government to subsequently fund or award any proposed effort. Only Contracting Officers are legally authorized to commit the Government.
