The Air Force Research Laboratory is seeking next-generation cyber technologies that align with its vision for cyber superiority and could award up to $975 million toward the effort over the next five years through a new broad agency announcement.

The BAA, released Tuesday, is focused on innovative cyber capabilities to support cyber mission assurance in the Air Force and Space Force. AFRL is interested in a number of technologies, including cyber modeling and simulation, decision support for cyber missions, secure development tools and techniques and zero trust computing, among others.

The lab expects to award $121 million in fiscal year 2021 and notes that contracts will range from $100,000 to $99 million. White papers for FY-21 awards are due April 5.
