Air Force Awards SpyCloud SBIR Contract to Develop Identity Intelligence Solution

The U.S. Air Force is stepping up its cyber defense development efforts with a contract awarded to a small business.

On Wednesday, SpyCloud announced that it received a Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 contract to develop innovative identity intelligence solutions for the Department of the Air Force. The contract is part of a collaboration between the Air Force Research Laboratory and AFWERX, which aim to streamline the SBIR and Small Business Technology Transfer process, SpyCloud said.

Bill Cull, SpyCloud vice president of federal and a 4×24 member, said the contract award allows the company to use its intelligence and capabilities to develop world-class defense solutions for the U.S. armed forces.

The service has been turning to AFWERX to accelerate and fund the development of innovative, cutting-edge technologies. In 2023, it was behind the Edgybees’ SBIR Phase 2 contract to improve situational awareness and the artificial intelligence development contract awarded to Shield AI.

Small businesses have been playing a vital role in helping the government achieve its goals. An analysis by HigherGov disclosed that contracts awarded to small businesses in fiscal year 2022 totaled $158.7 billion, a three percent increase from FY21.
