Jeff Brody

The U.S. Air Force has issued a broad agency announcement to ask for technical concept papers on kill chain integration as the service branch aims to increase awareness of emerging threats, according to a notice posted Friday on the beta SAM website.

Technology areas of interest listed in the BAA include intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, cryptography, mobile networking and communications, threat system exploitation and geospatial analysis of social media.

USAF is seeking tools that have reached Technology Readiness Level 3 and designed to trace, monitor, assess and isolate insider threats via agile methods.

The service branch will accept proposals through Nov. 30
