The Mission: Building a Cyber Fortress for Space Force

Alright, buckle up, Buttercup.  The US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Space Vehicles Directorate out of Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico, isn’t just whistling Dixie.

They’ve thrown down the gauntlet with a request for information that’s got the tech world buzzing.

And this isn’t your typical government request.

It’s part of the Rapid Architecture Prototyping and Integration Development (RAPID) for Trusted Network Device project.

They’re on the hunt for the brainpower to build a fortress in the sky – a secure networking solution that’s earthbound and space-ready.

Confronting the Cyber Threat: Space Force’s Urgent Challenge

Here’s the deal: the cyber threat landscape isn’t just changing; it’s evolving at warp speed.

The US Space Force needs to stay ahead of this curve, or we’re talking about risking more than just a bad connection.

The mission? Slap a cyber-secure overlay network on the existing ones.
