On August 5, the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) posted an updated broad agency announcement (BAA) for Advancing Computing Technology and Applications (BAA NUMBER: FA8750-19-S-7010).
This announcement is for an Open, 2-Step BAA, which is open and effective until 29 September 2024. 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 2359 Eastern Standard Time (EST) on 29 September 2024, the agency recommends that submissions for FY23 funding be submitted by 31 May 2022.
AFRL is seeking innovative research to explore and develop computational capabilities with greater sophistication, autonomy, intelligence, and assurance for addressing dynamic mission requirements imposed by command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) and cyber applications and size, weight, and power (SWaP) constrained Air Force platforms.
