This Request for Information (RFI) by the USAF Space and Missile Systems Center Military Satellite Communications (MILSATCOM) Systems Directorate (SMC/MC) seeks industry feedback on capabilities and approaches to meet future strategic and tactical protected MILSATCOM needs to increase effectiveness and affordability in the 2025-2040 timeframe. This information will be used by the Government to inform the Protected Satellite Communications Services (PSCS) Analysis of Alternatives (AoA), which, in turn, will inform future Service Program Objective Memorandum (POM) efforts. Specifically, information is sought on existing technical capabilities, recommended acquisition strategies, and relevant future technologies that reduce risk, cost, complexity, and/or development timelines. The information may encompass alternative protected MILSATCOM, aerial and surface layer architectures (which span space, ground, terminal segments, aerial and surface), hosted payloads, small freeflyers (a small freeflyer is defined as a small, lightweight, standalone satellite which can be  launched on a commercial launch vehicle), compatible security architectures, operational management, and modified or new waveform/protocols.
