WASHINGTON – The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, will launch the Modeling of Reflectance Given Only Transmission of High-concentration Spectra for Chemical Recognition Over Widely-varying eNvironments —“MORGOTH’S CROWN” —Challenge as part of the Standoff ILluminator for Measuring Absorbance and Reflectance Infrared Light Signatures—“SILMARILS”—program....



Two new programs are slotted to undergo proposer’s days, according to a news release from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity. Proposer’s Day allows the managers of the program to present the outlining material and vision of the program before a broad agency announcement is formally issued.



The research arm of the intelligence community is hoping new bio-detection technology can be developed to help defend against human engineered biological threats.
