DARPA will host a Proposers Day in support of the Atomic Magnetometer for Biological Imaging In Earth’s Native Terrain (AMBIIENT) program from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on April 3, 2017, at the DARPA Conference Center (DCC 01-200) in Arlington, VA. Advanced registration is required. More information about the Proposers Day is available in a Special Notice (DARPA-SN-17-27) posted on fbo.gov (https://www.fbo.gov/spg/ODA/DARPA/CMO/DARPA-SN-17-27 /listing.html). The AMBIIENT Broad Agency Announcement (HR001117S0025), which provides an extensive description of the program’s technical goals and performer requirements, is also available on fbo.gov.
Magnetic sensing of sub-surface electrical currents offers a unique capability for dynamic imaging of biological processes with extensive applications in both biomedical research and clinical diagnosis, including magnetoencephalography (MEG), magnetocardiography (MCG), and fetal magnetocardiography (fMCG). To date however, widespread application of magnetic sensing to clinical or field diagnosis has been limited by the high cost of the instrumentation and the need for highly shielded facilities to sense femtoTesla (fT) biological signals. The AMBIIENT program seeks to develop highly sensitive magnetic gradiometers capable of detecting fT-level magnetic signatures in unshielded ambient magnetic field environments.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to promote teaming arrangements between researchers; provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the government’s research and development solicitations; and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, Proposer Days are open only to registered potential proposers. The event is closed to the general public and media. Media inquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
