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.
The goal of the Adapting Cross-Domain Kill-Webs (ACK) program is to assist military decision-makers with rapidly identifying and selecting options for tasking – and retasking – assets within and across organizational boundaries. While the technology developed for this program will apply at both the tactical and operational levels, ACK will focus on providing support for tactical decisions.
This announcement seeks revolutionary research ideas for topics not being
addressed by ongoing BTO programs or other published solicitations.
While jet lag and traveler's diarrhea are inconveniences for an average
traveler, they are critical challenges to operational readiness for a
warfighter and can be the difference between mission success or failure. To
maximize warfighter performance, the ADvanced Acclimation and Protection
Tool for Environmental Readiness (ADAPTER) program will develop systems to
provide warfighters with control over their own physiology. This program
will integrate therapeutic cellular factories and biomolecules into an
internal, bioelectronics carrier that the warfighter can signal, as needed,
to initiate the production and release of therapies that either eliminate
the principal cause of traveler's diarrhea - pathogenic bacteria - or
regulate disrupted circadian rhythms caused by jetlag or shift work
