The objective of the DARPA Biological Control program is to build new
capabilities for the control of biological systems across scales - from
nanometers to centimeters, seconds to weeks, and biomolecules to populations
of organisms - using embedded controllers made of biological parts to
program system-level behavior.

TRAnsformation DESign (TRADES) Proposers Day
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the TRAnsformative DESign (TRADES) program
Theoretical Foundations for the Design of Collective Human-Machine Systems
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is requesting information concerning research related to foundational, quantitative theories for the analysis and design of human-machine systems, with a focus on collectives of humans and machines ranging in number from 5 to 100, as well as novel testing capabilities for assessing the value of these abstractions or theories using experimental verification across multiple problem domains.
Signal Processing at RF (SPAR)
DARPA seeks to transform radio frequency (RF) systems by developing RF analog signal processing and nonreciprocal technologies that perform unprecedented levels of in-band interference suppression. The Signal Processing at RF (SPAR) technology must mitigate both self and externally generated interfering signals of known and unknown characteristics. Performers will be expected to demonstrate novel in-band signal interference mitigation technologies using analog signal processing techniques as well as novel chip-scale circulator approaches.

Targeted Neuroplasticity Training
DARPA seeks innovative proposals to
develop technology for enhancing cognitive skill learning in healthy adults by using noninvasive
peripheral neurostimulation to promote synaptic plasticity in the brain. The Targeted
Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) program will elucidate the anatomical and functional map of the
underlying neural circuity involved in regulating synaptic plasticity. The program seeks to
demonstrate peripheral modulation of the neural circuit, connect neuroplasticity with cognitive
improvements, and optimize intervention protocols for long term retention with no side effects.
