Air Force reaches out to industry for improved electronic intelligence processing enabling technologies

Sept. 14, 2020
Emphasis is on signal processing; intelligence collection; enhanced databases; real-time collection; and improved post-mission intelligence processing.

ROME, N.Y. – The U.S. Air Force is looking for new ways to process electronic intelligence signals used to detect threats in support of its reconnaissance platforms, according to a broad agency announcement (BAA) published earlier this month. Defense One reports. Continue reading original article

The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

14 Sept. 2020 -- This research will help the Air Force find ways to keep up with increased complexity and volume of the electronic intelligence battlespace and improve intelligence gathering.

The BAA asks for high-risk research related to threat detection and prosecution at the Air Force Research Lab’s Information Directorate in Rome, N.Y. The Air Force is looking for new methods for signal processing.

Researchers are looking for technology that are hardware-agnostic and have unlimited data rights. The Air Force needs technologies that demonstrate automated, real-time signal detection, processing, exploitation, and reporting capabilities.
