The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has issued a presolicitation notice for the second and third phases of its Wireless Network Defense program to develop technology for protecting wireless networks’ medium access control protocols.
A broad agency announcement posted July 16 on FedBizOpps says the ongoing first phase of the program is focused on techniques to determine reliability of shared information between network nodes and to limit impact on performance of network threats.
These technical areas will move forward to prototype development and laboratory demonstration in phase two and over-the-air field demonstration in phase three, following phase one’s completion in October.
Another government agency will provide the Red Team features for these phases, the BAA said.
Responses to the presolicitation will be accepted through Dec. 20.
