You have two things happening here. First, the Horizon Project was not a DNA testing lab. It was a program to see if selected members could live
underground for the purposes of living on a future planned base (lunar).
If you like, I will post images of said base designs as well as the document here if there is interest.
Our DNA (underground testing) is very restricted.
I have a ton of documents now about underground facilities but after glancing through, I didn't find anything of note regarding anything that you've
stated. There is a gentleman who works over at the NGA, and this is what was shared with me on him. First name has been redacted.
" ******* Sevin An independent consultant, Dr. Sevin's research interests are in nuclear and conventional weapons effects, hardened facility design,
and computational structural mechanics. Dr. Sevin has served as chief of the Strategic Structures Division of the Defense Nuclear Agency and as
assistant to the deputy director for science and technology for experimental research, DNA. He joined the Office of the Secretary of Defense
Our current Deputy and Director knows nothing about a Horizon project. Call him yourself if you don't believe me, or if you're able. This leads me
to presume that the Horizon project you are
speaking about, has nothing to do with DNA testing inasmuch as it does the lunar outpost.
The document is long so here's a brief rundown.

PROJECT HORIZON REPORT
A U. S. ARMY STUDY FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT
OF A LUNAR OUTPOST
CRD/1 (S) Proposal to Establish a Lunar Outpost ( C )
Chief of Ordnance CRD 20 Mar 1959
1. (U) Reference letter to Chief of Ordnance from Chief of Research and Development, subject as above.
2. (C) Subsequent to approval by the Chief of Staff of reference, representatives of the Army Ballistic Missile Agency indicated that supplementary
guidance would be required concerning the scope of the preliminary investigation... (snip)
5. Your plan of accomplishment should include full utilisation of the other technical services and combat arms to the extent feasible and necessary.
In the accomplishment of this investigation the Chief of Engineers all be responsible for the design, constriction, and maintenance of the base and
the Chief Signal Officer will be responsible for communications and other support for which he is peculiarly qualified. Specific emphasis should be
given to the Army-wide capability to contribute to this project. The results of this preliminary investigation are requested by 15 May 1959.
6. Reproductions of this letter to the extent you deem essential is **********. All copies will be recorded.

Requirement for a Lunar Outpost
There is a requirement for a manned military outpost on the moon. The lunar outpost is required to develop and protect potential United States
interests on the moon; to develop techniques in moon-based surveillance of the earth and space, in communications relay, and in operations on the
surface of the moon; to serve as a base for exploration of the moon, for further exploration into space and for military operations on the moon if
required; and to support scientific investigations on the moon.
2. Operational Concept.
Initially the outpost will be of sufficient size and contain sufficient equipment to permit the survival and moderate constructive activity of a
minimum number of porsonne1 (about 10 - 20) on a sustained basis. It must be designed for expansion of facilities, resupply, and rotation of personnel
to ensure maximum extension of sustained occupancy. It should be designed to be self-sufficient for as long as possible without outside support. In
the location and design of the base, consideration will be given to operation of a triangulation station of a moon-to-earth base line space
surveillance system, facilitating communications with and observation of the earth, facilitating travel between the moon and the earth, exploration of
the moon and further explorations of space, and to the defence of the base against attack if required. The primary objective is to establish the first
permanent manned installation on the moon. Incidental to this mission drill be the investigation of the scientific, commercial, and military potential
of the moon.
