2018/02/07 Playing 20 Questions with Bacteria to Distinguish Harmless Organisms from Pathogens

Image Caption: The potential threats posed by unfamiliar bacteria can evade state-of-the-art forensics technology, which requires existing knowledge of a bacterium’s function or biochemical makeup. DARPA's new Friend or Foe program aims to develop a platform technology that rapidly screens unfamiliar bacteria to establish their pathogenicity and even discover unknown pathogenic traits, necessary first steps for designing effective biosurveillance and countermeasures.
Bacteria underpins much of our world, acting behind the scenes to affect the health and behavior of animals and plants. They help produce food, provide oxygen, and even reshape the environment through a vast array of biological processes. They come in a phenomenal number of strains-many still unknown-and thrive in different ecological and environmental niches all over the world. But while their diverse behaviors makes them essential to life, bacteria can also be deadly.

DARPA Marks Its 60th Anniversary
On this day in 1958, four months after the Soviet Union boosted the intensity of the Cold War by launching humanity's first satellite, then Secretary of Defense Neil McElroy established the Advanced Research Projects Agency with this mandate: "to provide within the Department of Defense an agency for the direction and performance of certain advanced research and development projects." In carrying out that open-ended mission for the past 60 years, the Agency has become widely known as a driver of technological developments that have girded national security (stealth, precision munitions, and unmanned aerial vehicles) and that sometimes have transformed daily civilian life (the internet, miniaturized GPS, and emerging fleets of driverless vehicles).

PALS Turns to Marine Organisms to Help Monitor Strategic Waters
The world's vast oceans and seas offer seemingly endless spaces in which adversaries of the United States can maneuver undetected. The U.S. military deploys networks of manned and unmanned platforms and sensors to monitor adversary activity, but the scale of the task is daunting and hardware alone cannot meet every need in the dynamic marine environment. Sea life, however, offers a potential new advantage. Marine organisms are highly attuned to their surroundings-their survival depends on it-and a new program out of DARPA's Biological Technologies Office aims to tap into their natural sensing capabilities to detect and signal when activities of interest occur in strategic waters such as straits and littoral regions.

2018/02/01 Reading the Body’s History of Threat Exposure

Image Caption: The epigenome is biology’s record keeper. Though DNA does not change over a single lifetime, a person’s environment may leave marks on the DNA that modify how that individual’s genes are expressed. DARPA’s new Epigenetic CHaracterization and Observation (ECHO) program aims to build a field-deployable platform technology that quickly reads someone’s epigenome and identifies signatures that indicate whether that person has ever been exposed to materials that could be associated with weapons of mass destruction. The same technology could also serve as a tool for U.S. troops to diagnose infectious disease or reveal exposure to threat agents so that medical countermeasures can be applied in time to make a difference.
Picture an intelligence officer in the field. She is trying to piece together a suspected threat, and has access to someone who may have a role in carrying it out. There may be traces of biological or chemical agents on his clothing or hair. She can look for them, but they're transient, and often present in such low concentrations that she'll need to send samples to a laboratory. Or she can check his epigenetic markers, read a history of any time he's been exposed to threat agents, and start piecing together a chain of evidence right there in the field, in real time.

DARPA Announces 2019 Spectrum Collaboration Challenge Live Finale
DARPA today announced its plans for the 2019 finale of the Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2)-the world's first collaborative machine-intelligence competition to address spectrum scarcity. Through a new partnership with the GSMA, the organization that represents mobile operators worldwide, DARPA will host a live SC2 Championship event alongside the 2019 Mobile World Congress Americas (MWCA) annual conference and exhibition. The DARPA and GSMA partnership creates an opportunity to display the groundbreaking SC2 technologies for the wireless telecommunications community at an accessible, public event.
