AFRL releases updated SIETE ARA

On February 8, the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) posted an updated version of the Signals Information Exploitation Technology Enhancements (SIETE) advanced research announcement (ARA). For FY24 funding consideration, white papers should be submitted by February 28, 2024.

This announcement is for an Open, 2 Step ARA which is open and effective until 31 Dec 2026.  Only white papers will be accepted as initial submissions; formal proposals will be accepted by invitation only.  While white papers will be considered if received prior to 3pm Eastern Standard Time (EST) on 31 Dec 2026, the following submission dates are suggested to best align with projected funding:

FY22 by 15 MAR 2022

FY23 by 28 FEB 2023

FY24 by 28 FEB 2024

FY25 by 28 FEB 2025

FY26 by 28 FEB 2026

AFRL is seeking innovative research to investigate algorithms, methodologies, and techniques for the demonstration and evaluation of enhanced signal information exploitation, dissemination, and analytics of existing and emerging adversarial systems. Areas of emphasis include 1) onboard processing enhancements of manned and unmanned Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) platforms; 2) high speed signal detection and prosecution technology demonstration, 3) cross domain multi-sensor/multi-platform data analytics, and 4) Open System Architecture (OSA) compliance for demonstration in operationally relevant environments.
