AFRL is seeking innovative research to provide new or improved functionality to Multi-Level Security (MLS) and cyber security environments. Research should promote the state of the art for secure, accreditable resilient and reactive capabilities to enhance the sharing of information between multiple security domains within both enterprise and mobile/tactical environments.
Total funding for this BAA is approximately $49.9M. Individual awards will not normally exceed 36 months with dollar amounts normally ranging from $1M to $3M. 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.
