Program Announcement for Disruptioneering (Defense Sciences Office)
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.

Human physiology is a limiting factor in the operational readiness of the
United States Department of Defense. When the human body is damaged or a
physiological system is not functioning optimally, interventions are
required to help mend the injury or support continued performance. DARPA
seeks to develop new technological approaches in medicinal chemistry and
systems pharmacology to expand the druggable proteome and discover new
therapeutic tools in the areas of soft tissue pain/inflammation and
metabolic stress that limit optimal physiological function.. This new
platform technology will directly address needs within the Department of
Defense to support the unique physiological demands of the warfighter and
provide proof-of-concept for novel drug discovery and development pipelines.

Knowledge-directed Artificial Intelligence Reasoning Over Schemas (KAIROS)
DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of creation of a schema-based artificial intelligence capability to enable contextual and temporal reasoning about complex real-world events in order to generate actionable understanding of these events and predict how they will unfold. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, or systems. Specifically excluded is research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice.

Strategic Technologies (STO) OFFICE-WIDE
DARPA is seeking innovative ideas and disruptive technologies that provide the U.S. military significant capability improvement to dominate across all scales of conflict intensity. These span highly contested force-on-force conflicts to ambiguous, complex 'Gray Zone' conflicts. Technologies should support conflicts that may take place in a range of environments from austere, remote locations to dense megacities.

Intelligent Neural Interfaces (INI)
This AIE Opportunity for the Intelligent Neural Interfaces (INI) program is
soliciting proposals to establish the proof of concept prototype for
third-wave artificial intelligence methods that could improve and expand the
application space of next-generation neurotechnology. Teams will address two
major challenges specific to central and/or peripheral neural interfaces.
These challenges include: (1) decision making for sustainment and
maintenance of neural interfaces to promote robustness and reliability, and
(2) modeling and maximizing the information content of biological neural
circuits to increase the bandwidth and computational abilities of the neural
