Offerors should monitor the Contract Opportunities on the Beta SAM website at in the event this announcement is amended.

Seeking innovative research to develop emerging SIGINT real-time processing solutions to improve tactical information extraction, identification, analysis and reporting in support of the Intelligence Community.  Overall program goals include providing situational awareness for worldwide signals and network intelligence sources; sensor data collection and processing with a network-centric approach; identification of critical processes to understand the adversarial battlespace, and multi-platform/multi-intelligence support to increase the blue coalition warfighting capabilities.

One of the key objectives is to advance the state-of-the-art capabilities by providing the warfighter with real-time tools to quickly assess and precisely pinpoint the right decision to mitigate the tactical threat and ensure battlespace dominance.

This BAA is a follow-on to BAA RIK 2014-0010, titled “SIGINT Collection, Processing and Exploitation.
