Air Force Issues RFI on Cyber Defense Capabilities for Space Operations

Jeff Brody

The U.S. Air Force is looking for information on potential sources of technologies that can support the service’s defensive cyber operations for space activities.

According to a FedBizOpps notice posted Friday, the Air Force intends to develop a long-term plan for coordinating enterprise ground services and satellite operations in order to “establish enterprise-wide situational awareness in the cyberspace domain resulting in effective, prioritized DCO-S.”

A “multipronged approach” will be implemented to managing EGS command and control and cybersecurity operations that will cover focus areas such as DevSecOps, rapid response to a cyber event and DCO-S fielding services.

The effort will support the Air Force Space Command’s C2 and threat intelligence integration activities as well as the Space and Missile Systems Center’s deployment of enterprise-level DCO capabilities.

Interested parties may submit responses to the request for information through July 10.
