ODNI-Sponsored Study Examines Bioeconomy

WASHINGTON, D.C. – An Office of the Director of National Intelligence-sponsored study examining the current state of the bioeconomy and outlining strategies to protect data and intellectual property was released last week.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA), within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, announced today the launch of the Molecular Information Storage (MIST) program. MIST is a multi-year research effort to develop next-generation data storage technologies that can scale into the exabyte (1 million terabyte) regime, and beyond, with significantly reduced physical footprint, power and cost requirements, relative to conventional approaches. The program will pursue this goal by using synthetic DNA as a data storage medium and developing a new category of devices that can write information to, and read from, synthetic DNA media at scale.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – For the 11th consecutive year, Intelligence Community (IC) employee job satisfaction ranks the IC as one of the “Best Places to Work in the Federal Government.”


The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) welcomes Dr. Catherine Marsh as the director of the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA). She succeeds Dr. Stacey Dixon, who now serves as deputy director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

Dr. Alan MacDougall became the sixth director of the National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC) Nov. 5. He succeeds Annette Totten, who retired from public service after leading NCPC for nearly two years. MacDougall served as NCPC’s deputy director prior to the selection.
