Past Solicitations
Assured Timing for Critical Infrastructure

This BAA solicitation (HSHQDC-15-R-B0008) is a call issued against Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Science & Technology (S&T), Resilient Systems Division (RSD), 5-Year Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), HSHQDC-15-R-B0002. All terms and conditions of the DHS S&T RSD 5-Year BAA HSHQDC-15-R-B0002 apply to this solicitation unless otherwise noted herein. One of DHS S&T's Visionary Goals is titled Resilient Communities: Disaster-Proofing Society. This goal specifies that critical infrastructure be designed, built, and maintained to withstand naturally occurring and man-made disasters. Decision makers will have the ability to know when a disaster is coming; anticipate potential effects, and use already-in-place or rapidly deployable countermeasures and mitigation techniques to shield communities from negative consequences.


TTA-1 - Development of Assured Timing Technologies

Will develop assured timing technologies for critical infrastructure, including prototype development and testing that can provide robust timing inputs to critical infrastructure.

TTA-2 - System-Level Testing & Analysis to Understand Impacts

Seeks to provide a fundamental baseline understanding of the risk profile of timing disruptions to critical infrastructure through system-level testing and analysis to understand both short- and long-term (30+ days) impacts of undetected manipulation or denial of timing service disruptions to key critical infrastructures.

TTA-3 - Development of Timing Manipulation Detection Capabilities

Will develop detection capabilities for timing issues specific to critical infrastructure including prototype testing and results, which can be easily integrated into existing operations.
