This program supports international research in all aspects of technology related to cyber capabilities and Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR). The program draws from international communities of communications and network theory, provable security, information assurance, mathematics, and signal processing. In 2016, the program funded research into: proof assistants and tools for algorithms and protocols; the tensions between data provenance and data security; the tradeoffs between complexity, degeneracy and robustness in network functionality; new medium access control mechanisms for radar-comm hybrids, molecular devices, and multi-receiver channels; and new metrics for understanding and identifying emergent behaviors. In 2017, the program will start new work in: formally investigating and quantifying the human component of cyber security; understanding the information capacity of hidden malware command and control channels; and behavior-based access control paradigms. Further information can be obtained by contacting the Program Officer, Lt Col Ryan Thomas, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About EOARD Established in 1952, the mission of the European Office of Aerospace Research & Development (office symbol: AFRL/AFOSR/IOE) is to discover, shape, and champion fundamental research of profound scientific impact and Air Force relevance. Located in London, our area of engagement includes Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and former Soviet states. EOARD provides direct financial support (and support on behalf of other AF and DoD funding agencies) for innovative international science, primarily through research grants. In addition, we support technical exchanges and visiting scientists to foster collaborations between leading researchers and the Air Force research community.
