The following topic is an anticipated requirement for AFRL/RYAA for FY 14. A BAA solicitation requesting proposals for this topic is anticipated to be published in August 2014.

The funding listed reflects the estimated requirement funding only. This estimate is not a guarantee of funding. Funding is uncertain and is subject to change. Changes in funding availability may occur at Government discretion.

Technical Description: The Objective of the SIRCUS Program is to perform broad, multidisciplinary research in fundamental sensing and sensor exploitation technologies.

This research will include all aspects of sensor development and management, innovative sensing, sensor exploitation, performance metrics, performance analysis and methods for sensor exploitation performance prediction, cooperative autonomous systems, information visualization, mobile computing architectures and applications, and computational sciences.

The contractor will be expected to deliver all software and/or hardware as required, and all associated data developed and/or used in the execution of this effort, unless clearly stated otherwise in the proposal. It is anticipated that a BAA providing more details into this program will be released in August 2014; the solicitation will be made available at Direct any questions to the Contracting or Technical point of contacts identified in the announcement.

General OPSEC procedures, policies and awareness are required in an effort to reduce program vulnerability from successful adversary collection and exploitation of critical information. OPSEC will be applied throughout the lifecycle of the program. The Critical Information List will be provided upon request by the RYOY Security Office. While working on the government installation OPSEC will be provided by the RYOY Security Office.

All activities associated with this effort will be provided with, and comply with, an applicable Security Classification Guide (SCG) for the system under test or under development. Research being performed will require clearances up to Secret.

All DoD contractors (including subcontractors) shall supplement their current security practices by requiring any personnel involved in executing this contract where critical program information (CPI) has been identified to protect the CPI to the standards articulated in the Program Protection Plan and in accordance with DoDI 5200.39. Upon contract award, all identified DoD contractors (including subcontractors) shall acknowledge and meet the requirements stated by the Program Manager for the protection of CPI. The DoD contractor must immediately notify the U.S. Government upon the discovery of any nonconformance with CPI protection.

Funding: Anticipated Program Funding: $22,000,000 (FY14-FY20)
