DARPA yesterday issued a solicitation for proposals responsive to its Spectral Combs from UV to THz (SCOUT) program, which seeks new capabilities for highly sensitive remote detection of multiple biological or chemical agents in liquid or gaseous forms. A proposers day is set for Oct. 15 via webcast.
Our ability to detect and identify chemical and biological signals of interest is critical for security at home and abroad. While optical spectroscopy is a valuable tool in the laboratory, current technologies lack the sensitivity and broad spectral coverage needed to detect and distinguish among agents of interest given ubiquitous, dynamic background signals generated by common components in the atmosphere.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is seeking information on new capabilities that could be enabled by current and next generation quantum computers for understanding complex physical systems, improving artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), and enhancing distributed sensing. The field of Quantum Computing (QC) has seen considerable progress in recent years, both in the number of qubits that can be physically realized, and in the formulation of new quantum search and optimization algorithms.
