The U.S. Air Force plans to award up to $750M in total funds for research and development of aircraft integration and virtual modeling systems.

The service branch released a broad agency announcement in an effort to facilitate work on “air superiority” platforms under the Air Force Research Laboratory’s munitions directorate, according to a FedBizOpps notice posted Thursday.

Interested parties may submit white papers under the first research area covering simulation, modeling and analysis methods as well as concepts of intercommunicative weapons, navigation systems, propulsion, aerodynamics, datalinks and multiple-targeting operations.

MS&A concepts under this area may also cover missile performance assessments involving factors such as hypersonics, thermal pressure and automation.

The second research area encompasses the design, development and demonstration of aircraft integration capabilities such as physical, electrical and logical interfaces as well as “other aspects of aircraft integration that may be applicable,” according to the BAA.

USAF will accept responses to the announcement through Oct. 31, 2024.
