data ServersThe Department of the Air Force is asking industry to adapt and incorporate a moving target defense system into a command and control platform to help the service achieve its cybersecurity goals.

The Air Force Materiel Command issued a pre-solicitation Wednesday seeking contractors to develop a method to identify various moving target defense systems and measure how many resources these MTDs consume.

Interested companies must submit a white paper for the research by Aug. 29 and the Air Force plans to award contracts worth up to $500,000 with periods of performance of between nine months to two years, the service says.

The research program aims to mobilize enterprise-wide static network and computing resources in order to counter attacks to critical infrastructures.

Potential contractors will work to wrap MTD techniques in a common application programming interface for integration into an architecture.
