Severe combat injuries require surgical care as soon as possible to avoid loss of life. However, the established combat evacuation and care practice of bringing wounded to surgical facilities within the “Golden Hour” in conflicts such as Afghanistan are not scalable to large scale combat operations (LSCOs) across all theaters. It is expected that the duration of time from injury to surgical treatment will greatly extend beyond an hour for future conflicts, necessitating a need to provide advanced medical care closer to the point of injury, and to extend the “Golden Hour” to a vastly extended “Golden Window” that would allow more time to evacuate casualties to higher levels of care.

Theoretically, solutions exist to provide extensive casualty care outside of surgical facilities (e.g., Critical Care Advanced Transport Team, providing care on-board a moving aircraft) that could be brought to bear, but these require an expert team to place a suite of interfaces between essential devices (i.e., resuscitation fluid pumps and ventilators) and the patient, and then to continuously manage those support devices. These solutions don’t scale to LSCOs, and are constrained by bulky hardware ill-suited for use on, or adjacent to, the battlefield.

GOLDEVAC aims to test whether it is possible to manage a complex polytrauma patient by providing automated resuscitation, starting near the point of injury and continuing throughout the evacuation process, via a single intravascular cannula that can be placed by a medic or even minimally trained non-medic. Specifically, GOLDEVAC will address whether it is possible to resuscitate and oxygenate a patient via this single interface, for extended periods of up to two days, without thrombotic complications. This single intravascular interface must be relatively small at the insertion site (less than 15 French, equivalent to 5 mm), and must be suitable for insertion by field medics safely and reliably, in concert with the rest of a complete device necessary to monitor and actuate the resuscitation. If successful, GOLDEVAC could provide a medical force multiplier that could enhance the DoD’s ability to successfully care for and then evacuate many more wounded service members, even during large-scale conflict.

DARPA hosts Industry Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations; and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, Industry Days are open only to potential proposers who have registered.

All U.S. Permanent Residents and Foreign Nationals must submit a DARPA Form 60, except foreign government personnel who must submit only an Official Visit Request completed by their respective Embassy based in Washington, DC.

All forms must be submitted no later than 5:00 PM ET on March 28, 2024. Form 60 submission instructions will be provided in the registration confirmation email. Contact your Embassy staff for assistance in submitting the Official Visit Request.


There is no registration fee for the Industry Day. Registration closes on March 28, 2024 at 5:00 PM ET.

Advance registration is requiredNOTE: All persons wishing to attend the webinar must register (whether viewing alone or as part of a group). 

Registration is limited to 350 participants, so early registration is recommended. Individuals who are unable to register because the deadline has occurred or capacity has been reached will be added to a waitlist. If slots remain open after registration closes or become available due to cancellations, the slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis from the waitlist.



Attendees may be afforded the opportunity to give a brief (3-minute) oral presentation outlining their interests and capabilities. Interested attendees are invited to submit one (1) MS Power Point (no animation) or Adobe PDF slide (Attachment 1) that summarizes their interests and capabilities, using the template provided on this website. Submitted presentations consisting of multiple slides or a single slide with multiple layers will not be granted a time slot. The purpose of these presentations is to facilitate teaming discussions among the attendees. Oral presentations will be restricted to one slide per presenter, which must be submitted to GOLDEVAC@darpa.mil no later than 5:00 PM ET on Thursday, March 28, 2024. Upon registering, attendees must indicate whether they would like to give an oral presentation. Due to limited availability, DARPA does not guarantee that these requests will be fulfilled. Lightning talk submissions will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until time constraints are reached. It is the responsibility of the submitter to assure all information contained in the lightning talk is non-proprietary, unclassified, and otherwise acceptable for public release. Neither DARPA nor DoD exercise any responsibility for improper dissemination of the lightning talks.


DARPA strongly encourages teaming to ensure the expertise and capabilities necessary to meet program goals. Interested parties are invited to augment their Industry Day participation by submitting a 1–2 page (Attachment 2) team profile that, at a minimum, includes the following:

  • Contact information (e.g., name, organization, email, phone number, mailing address, website);
  • Brief description of the proposers technical competencies and relevant facilities; and
  • Desired technical competencies and facilities needed from other potential team members, if applicable.

All profiles must be emailed to GOLDEVAC@darpa.mil no later than 5:00 PM ET on Thursday, March 28, 2024. Following the deadline, a consolidated list of profiles will be sent via email to all registrants. Furthermore, after the Industry Day, the teaming profiles will be made accessible to the proposer community on the GOLDEVAC Industry Day website. Profiles that do not use the provided teaming profile template or exceed the two-page limit will not be accepted. It is the responsibility of the submitter to assure all information contained in the teaming profile is non-proprietary, unclassified, and otherwise acceptable for public release. Profile submitters consent to distribution amongst event registrants. Specific content, communications, networking, and team formation are the sole responsibility of the participants. Neither DARPA nor DoD endorses the information and organizations contained in the consolidated teaming profile document, nor does DARPA or DoD exercise any responsibility for improper dissemination of the teaming profiles.


During registration, participants will also be able to sign up for short sidebars with DARPA personnel for discussion of any proprietary information that participants would not want to disclose in the other open sessions. These short 15-minute sessions will be held on Friday, April 5th from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM EDT. Sidebars must be scheduled through the registration website and will be on a first-come, first-served basis until time constraints are reached.
