The National Institute of Standards and Technology is conducting a market research on a reconfigurable industrial control systems cybersecurity test bed the agency wants to use to measure the performance of such systems against cybersecurity standards.
According to the notice posted Saturday on FedBizOpps, the test bed would simulate industrial control scenarios and start with the so-called “Tennessee Eastman” problem.
Information from this market research will be the basis of a potential competitive procurement and purchase order to qualified vendors, NIST says.
Interested parties are required to indicate details such as their offerings, achievable program specifications, name of system manufacturers, name of authorized sellers and delivery timeline.
Responses will be accepted through Aug. 18.
