The New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology has secured a potential seven-year, $93 million contract to help the  Air Force Research Laboratory explore cyber electronic warfare approaches for potential use in Department of Defense missions.

The cost-reimbursement award will involve research, development, evaluation, testing, training and deployment support services for electronic attack and cyber technology platforms intended to help DoD establish a “unique and enduring environment” for cyber EW activities, the Pentagon said Monday.

Work under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract will occur in Playas, N.M., through Oct. 7, 2026. AFRL is obligating $5.3 million at the time of award from the service branch’s fiscal 2019 R&D funds.
