Epigenetic CHaracterization and Observation (ECHO)
The Epigenetic CHaracterization and Observation (ECHO) program will utilize an individual's epigenome to reveal their history of exposure to weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and WMD precursors. The program will build a field-deployable platform capable of using the epigenome to diagnose biothreat exposures and infections and support military forensics operations to counter-WMD proliferation.

DARPA Launch Challenge Competitors Day
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Tactical Technology Office (TTO) is sponsoring a Competitors Day to provide information to potential participants on the objectives of the DARPA Launch Challenge. The goal of the DARPA Launch Challenge is to incentivize the emerging industry of small launch providers who will be able to launch payloads to low earth orbit (LEO) to demonstrate capabilities that are both flexible (launch from anywhere) and responsive (launch at any time).

DARPA seeks novel approaches to reversibly pause and/or slow the functions and preserve viability of living cells without reliance on cold temperature. This new technology aims to directly address needs within the Department of Defense to maintain and deliver biological therapeutics and extend the window of time for effective use of field forward therapeutics.

The Blackjack program will develop and demonstrate the critical technical
elements for building a global high-speed network backbone in low earth
orbit (LEO) that enables highly networked, resilient, and persistent DoD
payloads that provide over-the-horizon sensing, signals, and communications
to hold the ground, surface, and air domains in global constant custody. The
program is an architecture demonstration intending to show the high military
utility of global LEO constellations and mesh networks of low size, weight,
power, and cost (SWaP-C) payloads and commoditized satellite buses.
