Air Force looks for new C4ISR technologies

The Air Force’s Air Force Research Laboratory is interested in advancing its antenna and electromagnetic technologies that back up the command, control, communications, computer, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance programs.

It’s considering a 6-year, $40 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract that would include work in research and development in phenomenology, modeling and simulation, signal processing, system design and development, and test and evaluation of EM systems and sensors.

Among the research work, the Air Force wants innovation in detecting and tracking data on targets in constantly varying terrains and high-clutter environments by using electromagnetic scattering theory and situational awareness methodologies.

On top of the electromagnetic technologies, the Air Force wants to advance radio frequency sensing to geo-locate sensor data that provides situational awareness capabilities to operational units. It’s also looking for new and novel techniques that improve radio frequency and radar metrology.

The Air Force says it plans to make one award that could come in July.

The presolicitation was released Jan. 14.
