The Air Force is looking for assured cyber architectures technologies to improve the Defense Intelligence Information Enterprise.
The ACA announcement encompasses several areas, including infrastructure service technologies, identity and access management, cryptographs, and security metadata. The Air Force is also interested in application service technologies, enterprise evaluation and mission service technologies.
The goal of ACA is to first, "provide a more cohesive and complete situational awareness and assessment of enemy activities for on-going US missions, and second, provide surgical cueing for ACA opportunities. Automated knowledge-based tools and decision aids will provide a more effective use of the DI2E with its complementary intelligence data for improved situational awareness."
