In an effort to combat potential cyber threats, the Air Force Research Laboratory is looking to develop a rapidly-shifting computer network infrastructure, according to a solicitation for white papers on the FedBizOpps.gov website.
The Air Force is looking to dish out around $49 million for the development of the network system.
Under the anticipated Cyber Assurance Technologies program, the force was expected to spend an initial $4 million in 2011, $12 million each year between 2012 and 2014 and $9 million in 2015 on the system.
Key network features the Pentagon is looking to deploy include the ability to regenerate after an attack while detecting and defending against future threats, according to the post.
White papers will be accepted until September 28, 2015.
