Posted On: May 20, 2024

Initial Response Date: June 19, 2024

Closing Date: May 19, 2025

The Space Development Agency (SDA) issued a Broad Agency Announcement (HQ085024S0002) calling for white papers and subsequent invited proposals for containerized software application concepts for battle management of the Proliferated Warfighter Space Architecture (PWSA). These applications will offer substantial enhancements in capability for future tranches of PWSA capability layers. Additionally, the applications will enhance the adaptability of planned capability layers to address emerging or evolving warfighter needs. The PWSA will use a distributed Battle Management Command, Control and Communications (BMC3) hardware and software framework with mission-specific processing, algorithms, and applications across its various capability layers.

Through this BAA, SDA specifically seeks applications and services to support new and existing concepts of operation (CONOPS), knowledge gaps, system designs, key technologies, and/or risk reduction prototypes that enhance mission capability for defined tranches of PWSA capability layers, provide new capabilities addressing emerging or evolving warfighters needs, and provide enhanced Link-16 capability from space vehicles.
