Buffalo, NY – October 4, 2019 – CUBRC, Inc.’s President and CEO, Tom McMahon, announced today that CUBRC’s Data Science and Information Fusion (DSIF) Group has been awarded a $ $9,687,554 contract from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory located in Rome, NY to perform research and software development services focused on providing Enhanced Exploitation of Multi-Intelligence Data for Space Situational Awareness activities. 

The objective of this contract is to research, develop and mature innovative concepts to support space situational awareness activities. The effort addresses concepts including: enhanced tracking and characterization of space objects and debris, exploitation of non-traditional data sources, ontology development, anomaly detection methods, rendezvous and proximity operations characterization, and decision support aids. 

Bill Tagliaferri, Director of CUBRC’s DSIF operation in Rome, NY, who serves AFRL as CUBRC’s Program Manager for its Space Situational Awareness programs, stated, “Award of this contract will allow CUBRC to expand and enhance its state-of-the-art suite of situational awareness and predictive capabilities developed in cooperation with AFRL over the past decade.  These advanced software tools provide analysts the ability to amalgamate highly disparate data sets to provide near real-time and context aware situational awareness, mission level impact assessment and actionable information to decision makers for a variety of threats, both observed and predicted.”

This work will be performed in CUBRC’s Buffalo and Rome, New York facilities over the next four years.  Michael D. Moskal, CUBRC’s CIO and Senior VP for Information Exploitation further added, “This contract presents a great new opportunity for us to further our mission to create technological and economic growth in Western and Central New York while cementing AFRL-Rome’s critical role in developing technologies that address these new and ever changing space-based threats.”

 McMahon thanked AFRL-Rome for selecting CUBRC to perform this full and openly competed contract, emphasizing that this research and software development program is yet another example of CUBRC’s work to solve the Nation’s most difficult challenges in Defense, Intelligence and Space.


CUBRC is an independent scientific not-for-profit corporation that executes Research, Development, Testing and Systems Integration programs in Data Science and Information Fusion, Command and Control, Medical Sciences, Chemical and Biological Defense and Hypersonics.
