Key Document 1: DARPA’s “Next-Generation Non-Surgical Neurotechnology (N3)” (by Dr. Al Emondi, pdf)


Webmaster’s Comment: This document is a call for research proposals, including universities, government labs, corporations, and other research facilities throughout the world to “create reliable noninvasive and minutely invasive neural interfaces.”

It can be deduced, but not yet proven, that the “patient population” referred to in slide 5 refers to “targeted individuals” and that TIs comprise a large portion of the sample population for experimentation.

Slide 10 is:

Technical Descriptions to Include in the Proposal

1. Fabrication description for subcomponents (TA1 and TA2) and nanotransducer (TA2)  Provide a detailed development timeline that describes relevant microfabrication or nanofabrication processes

2. System-level design descriptions
 Describe the components, and a strategy for identifying system parameters
 Describe the underlying physics, how to overcome scattering/attenuation challenges

3. Phase I, II, III demonstration descriptions
 Describe demonstration ideas, justify the chosen method and why it is DoD relevant

4. System integration description
 Identify a system integrator, and describe how to integrate read/write subcomponents

5. Safety and histology description
 Describe procedures to collect the appropriate safety and histology data for FDA approval and to meet N3 metrics

6. Security Measures
 Describe approaches to ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability to prevent spoofing, tampering, or denial of system

7. Ethical, Legal, and Societal Implications (ELSI)
 Address the potential ELSI implications of the proposed technology

Short Bio of Dr. Al Emondi

Dr. Al Emondi joined DARPA in June 2017. His focus is on neurotechnology and human-machine interaction. His current work explores novel neural interface system architectures applicable to broad user populations and improving the performance of neural interfaces and their application potential through the use of third-wave artificial intelligence.

Emondi came to DARPA from Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWAR) Atlantic, located in Charleston, South Carolina, where he was the chief technology officer (CTO) for SPAWAR Atlantic and served as deputy CTO to the SPAWAR HQ CTO for the Atlantic region. He also led the science and technology competency, which included personnel focused on basic and applied sciences, technology transition, and technology transfer. Before his tour at SSC Atlantic, he was an early pioneer for software-defined radio research initiatives at the Air Force Research Lab in Rome, New York.

Emondi holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree in neuroscience and a Master of Science in electrical engineering from Syracuse University, and a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from Wilkes University.

  1. Hello, my name is George Nellans and I m being Falsely gang stalked for all the wrong reasons.. it’s to benefit two individuals in order for me not to come around my child.. I just would like to shorting this long story by getting to the point.. what happen was, my ex girlfriend Channa Soeurng AKA (Vonna) cheated on me with one of her coworkers at her work.. ( Primus International located in Algona,Washington.. The person she cheated on me with Ken Davis is a Mechanical engineer..Not sure if he still works for the same company though.. anyway, I’m almost positive he’s the one who is responsible for trying to destroy my life by falsifying information about me.. I never once hit any female in my life.. and never will, no matter what.. I love my kids so much and would never harm there mother.. Ken Davis is just trying to monitor everything I do, just so he can push me out of my kids life and also Vonna’s life in order for him to basically take over my family.. I’m trying my best to stay positive and focus on raising my kids the right way but, I’m having a rough time living my life and I feel like I’m about to lose focus on the positive and have a nervous break down.. I don’t deserve all this Harassment just so someone can obtain a relationship with a woman.. he feels threatened by me.. I don’t know why.. this is so wrong and evil.. I don’t think it should be so simple to hire a group to do this to a innocent person just so an individual can obtain something that he wants.. please help me and look into it.. thank you for your time..
