The Biological Technologies Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting and webcast to provide information to potential performers on the new ReSource program. The primary objective of ReSource is to provide the military with the ability to rapidly and efficiently up-convert military waste into valuable resources onsite and on demand. By the end of the program, developed platforms should be capable of resourcing on-demand products that could include the following: edible macronutrients; traditionally petroleum-derived products such as lubricants, adhesives, and tactical fibers; potable water; and other value-added molecules for an emergency ration (e.g., caffeine).
The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) develops and uses molecules and materials across a diverse range of areas including therapeutics, electronics, coatings, and fuels. Application areas with particularly unique relevance to national security, such as energetics, tend not to keep pace with the need for innovation and new performance characteristics.

The mission of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is to make strategic, early investments in science and technology that will have long-term positive impact on our nation's national security. As part of this mission, DARPA makes high-risk, high-reward investments in science and technology that have the potential to disrupt current understanding and/or approaches. The pace of discovery in both science and technology is accelerating worldwide, resulting in new fields of study and the identification of scientific areas ripe for disruption.
