Air Force awards 5 small firms $950M agile cyber R&D contract

The Air Force has awarded five companies positions on a potential five-year, $950 million contract for agile research-and-development services in cybersecurity.

The Air Force Research Laboratory received 22 offers in total for the new contract intended as a “focused yet flexible, rapid contracting vehicle,” the Defense Department said in its Thursday contracts digest.

Awardees will work with AFRL, its product centers and operational users on rapid research, development, prototyping demonstration, evaluation and transition of cyber capabilities.

Those winners are:

  • Assured Information Security
  • CNF Technologies
  • Global InfoTek
  • Invictus International Consulting
  • Radiance Technologies

“Agile Cyber Technology 2” migrated to being a small business set-aside contract versus its full-an-open predecessor awarded in 2012 to six large businesses that included CACI International and Peraton, the former Harris Corp. IT business, according to Deltek data.

Solicitation documents detail AFRL’s vision of the program as helping enable global vigilance, global reach and global power in air, space and cyberspace.
