The COBRA Program, short for Cyber Operations-Based Rapid Analytics, looks to ingest and use the Air Force’s wealth of data for analytics in support of cyberdefense operations. In an RFI posted Jan. 9, the service puts feelers out for commercial services to include cybersecurity engineers, cloud service engineers, administrators, and data scientists for this analytics help. Ingest data into the Air Force’s Amazon Web Services GovCloud data lake; “Create, test, and implement data analytics using Defense Information Services Agency (DISA)’s Big Data Platform (BDP) software suite to support a prioritized set of 24th Air Force (24 AF) data analytics use cases;” With this procurement, the Air Force says it wants to figure out how it can leverage a service-specific instance of DISA’s BDP tool for “a prioritized set of 24th Air Force (24 AF) data analytics use cases” to be used by “operators of multiple cyberspace weapon systems and other communities of interest (COIs).”
