Program Overview
The overarching goal for the IARPA TRUST Program is to significantly advance the IC’s capabilities to assess whom can be trusted under certain conditions and in contexts relevant to the IC, potentially even in the presence of stress and/or deception. The TRUST Program seeks to conduct high-risk, high-payoff research that will bring together sensing AND validated protocols to develop tools for assessing trustworthiness by using one’s own (“Self”) signals to assess another’s (“Other”) trustworthiness under certain conditions and in specific contexts, which can be measured in ecologically-valid, scientifically-credible experimental protocols.

The IARPA TRUST Program is expected to consist of three phases over a five year period. Phase 1 will be 24 months. Phases 2 and 3 are expected to be approximately24 months and 12 months, respectively. This BAA solicits proposals for Phase 1 only. Multiple awards are anticipated for Phase 1. Each award for Phase 1 is envisioned to consist of a one (1) year Base Period with a one (1) year Option Period. Near the conclusion of Phase 1, a separate solicitation is expected to be released that will address the next phase(s) of the program.

Phase 1 will sponsor technical and conceptual innovation in developing validated experimental protocols that measure, quantify, and assess different kinds of interpersonal trust and trustworthiness across different interactive, ecologically-valid contexts, to include dyadic and small group interactions in situations with high motivation and high perceived consequences. In short, Phase 1 will tackle the fundamental question that must be addressed first: "How does one design an experiment such that one knows, with high certainty, that what is being measured is trust (vice other phenomena), in contexts that are of real-world interest?"

In Phases 2 and 3 of the TRUST Program, some or all of the validated protocols developed during Phase 1 will be used to develop further tools (including new combinations of sensors and software that can be used outside of the laboratory) to detect and amplify useful signals in ourselves (the “Self”) in order to more accurately predict trust and trustworthiness in others (the “Other”)
