The Defense Department’s Rapid Reaction Technology (RRTO) Innovation Outreach Program is planning to conduct a solutions meeting to allow selected companies focusing on various cyber technologies to make short technical presentations to government representatives about their technologies and capabilities, according to a FedBizOpps notice posted March 22.
Companies presenting at the meeting may potentially be selected for pilot projects or experimentation if their technology appears to match the needs described in the post.
The RRTO is specifically looking for technology presentations in nine topic areas: cyber situational awareness; wireless, embedded and industrial control systems (ICS); next generation malware detection, adaptive defense and response; cyber modeling and simulation; insider threat detection and mitigation; cyber forensics and analytics; enterprise and cloud security services; big data for cyber; and artificial intelligence/autonomy for cyber. The notice lists several technologies in each area.
The department plans for the meeting to occur in the Washington area in the June-July timeframe. Responses are due April 19.
The RRTO, originally created as the Combating Terrorism Technology Task Force (CTTTF) after the 9/11 attacks, is focused on developing prototypes and hosting technology demonstrations “to counter emerging and anticipated threats in order to accelerate the delivery of resilient solutions leading to affordable warfighter capabilities,” the office website says. It partners with combatant commands, Service labs, Defense Department offices, other government agencies, the commercial sector, and academia.
