Article Text:

The Defense Innovation Marketplace provides a centralized resource for the Department’s Acquisition and Science and Technology professionals on information about industry’s Independent research and development activities. (2) The marketplace provides an online portal for government agencies and Industry participants, Marketplace community-building activities to enhance collaboration and communication include Communities of Interest and Technology Interchange Meetings.

In June, the Department of Defense (DoD) Communities of Interest (CoIs) for Human Systems, Biomedical, and Biotechnology joined together for an Independent Research and Development (IR&D) Technology Interchange Meeting (TIM).  The Air Force IR&D Office in concert with DoD’s Biotechnology Community of Interest postponed the 2021 Biotechnology Independent Research and Development (IR&D) Technology Interchange Meeting (TIM).  It is unclear whether the event took place in the Spring of 2022 as previously announced.

Various outlets have reported on the release of a report in April 2022 which is not yet publicly available.  We assume the report, entitled “Bio-Futures 2050: Defense Impacts and Opportunities”, is the result of one or both of the CoIs and TIMs itemized above.  For the purposes of our research and analysis, we focused on the Biotechnology CoI’s Sub Areas of:

  1. Enhancing Warfighter Systems (EWS); and
  2. Optimizing Warfighter Performance (OWP)

Both of these subareas have a prime focus on warfighter capabilities from the perspective of biotechnology innovation and futures.

The ‘thrust areas’ taxonomy itemized in this post is possibly the most creative exploration of the potential of exponential biotechnology innovation you will find from any government agency or industry sector.  Also, see the final section of this post below for foresight strategy insights garnered from the Bio-Futures 2050: Defense Impacts and Opportunities as reported by National Defense Magazine.
