This contract provides for a software system that will enable computers and humans to collaboratively reason over software artifacts with the goal of finding zero-day vulnerabilities at a scale and speed appropriate for a complex software ecosystem, the Department of Defense said in an announcement on the contract.

Work will be performed in Portland, and is expected to be completed by May 31, 2021.

The Air Force received 50 bids for the contract.

AFRL is based at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, and Galois also has an office in downtown Dayton’s Innovation District at 444 E. 2nd. St.
