Detect It with Gene Editing Technologies (DIGET) Proposers Day

December 11, 2019, 8:00 AM EST
The Biological Technologies Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting covering the new Detect It with Gene Editing Technologies (DIGET) program. DIGET aims to incorporate gene editors into detectors for distributed health biosurveillance and rapid, point-of-need diagnostics for endemic, emerging, and engineered pathogenic threats. The DIGET vision incorporates two devices: a handheld, disposable point-of-need device that screens samples for at least 10 pathogens or host biomarkers at once, combined with a massively multiplexed detection platform capable of screening clinical and environmental samples for more than 1,000 targets simultaneously.

Sea Train Proposers Day

December 17, 2019
The Tactical Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the Sea Train program in anticipation of a planned Broad Agency Announcement. The Sea Train program seeks to enable extended transoceanic transit and long-range naval operations by exploiting the efficiencies of a system of connected vessels (Sea Train).
