Army needs industry help to chart computer technology trends over next three decades

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md., 15 Feb. 2013. U.S. Army researchers are reaching out to industry for help in a long-term project to chart the most important developments in computer technology over the next three decades.

The Army Contracting Command at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., issued a request for information (RFI W15P7T13RA212) this week for the Cyber Technology Trends program to help Army researchers form a long-term cyber science and technology investment strategy spanning the next 30 or more years.

The RFI is on behalf of the Army Communications-Electronic Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., to project what possible computer technologies are likely to be available over the next three decades either as capability enablers or threats to U.S. and allied armed forces.

The RFI seeks information or forecasts on technology trends, concepts, and basic research that may shape how the world will use cyberspace and computer technologies in the next 25 to 35 years.

The request is for planning purposes only, and is not yet a formal solicitation, Army officials say.
