“I am pleased to announce that the Senate confirmed Susan Gordon yesterday to be the fifth Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence."

Thank you Attorney General Sessions for your leadership and for inviting me to join you here today and working together on the Task Force. We have served together in the U.S. Senate, and now we serve together in the Trump Administration.

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. The Challenge will launch later this month and invites solvers from around the world to develop algorithms to accurately predict the changes in a chemical’s infrared spectrum caused by changes in its molecular environment. Participants will join a global community working to benchmark research and foster innovation in chemical detection through crowdsourcing.
