On December 6, the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) released an updated version of the Cyber/SIGINT Collection, Processing Techniques and Enablers broad agency announcement (BAA). For best funding consideration, white papers should be received no later than 2:00 p.m. Eastern on November 30, 2022.

This announcement is for an Open, 2 Step BAA which is open and effective until 30 Sep 2023.  Only white papers will be accepted as initial submissions; formal proposals will be accepted by invitation only.

AFRLi is seeking innovative research to further increase AFRL’s knowledge and understanding of the broad range of capabilities required to (1) research and develop advanced Cyber and SIGnals INTelligence (SIGINT) communication collection techniques and support the development of systems that perform these operations, (2) to research and develop technologies to intercept, acquire, access, exploit, process and locate both covert and overt (network) data and signals in the cyberspace domain in support of the development of real-time processing technology to improve the extraction, identification, analysis and reporting of tactical information and (3) to research and develop unique and innovative techniques and algorithms that support the identification, collection, processing, exploitation, geolocation and/or manipulation of electronic communication signals in a moderate to dense co-channel environment.

This work is in support of the Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission to protect “blue” coalition forces with command, control, computer and intelligence applications, and to support technologies that will enable SIGINT systems and/or platforms with an improved ability to automatically detect, identify, sort, track, prioritize and reliably classify and more importantly geolocate signals of interest.
