The Department of Homeland Security has issued a presolicitation notice inviting small enterprises to submit questions on seven topic requirements for the fiscal year 2023 Small Business Innovation Research program.
DHS said Friday six of the seven topics deal with science and technology and the remaining topic focuses on countering weapons of mass destruction.
The six S&T topics are accurate and real-time hardware-assisted detection of cyber attacks; air cargo manifest analysis to aid screeners; first responder credentialing; machine learning based integration of alarm resolution sensors; mission critical services server-to-server communication, voice communications, 3GPP-standards; and reduced order modeling of critical infrastructure protect surfaces.
The CWMD topic focuses on theoretical classification methodologies to enable detection with predicted signatures.
“The SBIR program provides an opportunity for small businesses, including those that have never partnered with us before, to engage with DHS and make a real-world impact by addressing some of our most pressing homeland security challenges,” said Dusty Lang, director of DHS SBIR.
DHS will host a webinar on Dec. 13 to discuss the upcoming solicitation with interested offerors.
Technical questions should be submitted through Dec. 15.
