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.

DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office is hosting a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the new ECHO program. ECHO aims to develop technologies that enable the use of an individual’s epigenome to reveal their history of exposure to weapons of mass destruction and their precursors.

The Biological Technologies Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the new Measuring Biological Aptitude (MBA) program. MBA aims to improve how the individual warfighter identifies, measures, and tracks personalized biomarkers throughout his or her career to help achieve new levels of performance for specialized roles. MBA technologies could improve training, team formation, mission performance, and post-mission recovery, yielding a better prepared, more effective, more resilient force.
State-of-the-art magnetometers are used for diverse civilian and DoD applications, among them biomedical imaging, navigation, and detecting unexploded ordnance and underwater and underground anomalies. Commercially available magnetometers range from inexpensive Hall probes to highly sensitive fluxgate and atomic magnetometers to high-precision Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) and Spin Exchange Relaxation Free (SERF) magnetometers.
