The USAF offers $50M for Cyber Research. We could do it for a lot less.


A new US Air Force Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) offers approximately $49.9 million dollars between 2009 and 2012 for research papers that address the following topic description:

Proactively defend cyberspace by anticipating and avoiding threats through understanding the cyber situation, predicting adversarial actions, assessing potential impacts, and by implementing deterrence and effects based defensive methodologies. Detect and defeat threats and protect information systems by engagement and influence through defensive mechanisms employing such methods as adversary denial and deception. Adaptively maintain, organize, and automatically regenerate and reconstitute resources to ensure continued mission operations.

Considering the world-wide financial crisis that’s going on, perhaps some of my readers who are inside the Beltway will let the “powers-that-be” know that the Project Grey Goose team could do a better job faster, and for a LOT less.
