Air Force Research Lab Asks Contractors for New Aerial Communication Ideas

ArmyChopperThe Air Force Research Laboratory has asked contractors to submit ideas for what airborne networking methods and technologies the military could use for multi-altitude tactical communications.

AFRL wants to update aerial layer networks and network management features in order to address anti-access area denial challenges in the battlefield, the laboratory said Monday in a FedBizOpps post.

The Air Force will fund the R&D project with nearly $10 million to be divided by fiscal year between 2015 and 2017, according to the notice.

Areas of interest include software-based networking, machine-to-machine command and control, airborne connectivity, integrated network operations and Internet Protocol communications.

Interested contractors can submit proposals in white paper format to the lab through Sep. 30, 2017.
