DornerWorks announces it has been selected by AFWERX for a SBIR in the amount of $1.2M focused on a high assurance virtualization solution to address the high priority cybersecurity challenges in the Department of the Air Force (DAF). The Air Force Research Laboratory and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) process by accelerating the small business experience through faster proposal to award timelines, changing the pool of potential applicants by expanding opportunities to small business and eliminating bureaucratic overhead by continually implementing process improvement changes in contract execution. The DAF began offering the Open Topic SBIR/STTR program in 2018 which expanded the range of innovations the DAF funded and now on February 19, 2024, DornerWorks will start its journey to create and provide innovative capabilities that will strengthen the national defense of the United States of America.

“Today’s cybersecurity threat model is continually evolving. Through this new AFWERX SBIR, DornerWorks will provide the Air Force with a high assurance cybersecurity foundation (seL4 Hypervisor + DevSecOps) that scales to defend against current and future threats,” said Dr. Gregg Wildes, Innovation Director for DornerWorks.
