American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics), a program of NY CREATES gave $19 million in research program awards for advanced integrated photonics under The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agencys (DARPA) Lasers for Universal Microscale Optical Systems (LUMOS) program. …
If we could have a space drive that did not use fuel then we could accelerate for decades using a nuclear power source. This would allow a spacecraft with a tiny amount of propulsion to accelerate to near light speed. …
DARPA deployed a cubesat that has a new mini-space telescope. DARPAs Deformable Mirror (DeMi) CubeSat deployed from the International Space Station July 13 and uses a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) mirror for the space telescope. The mirror changes shape to correct …
DARPA Blackjack aims to demonstrate spy satellite sensors that are low in size, weight, and power, and that can be mass produced to fit on many different buses from many different providers, for less than $2 million per payload. They …
The US Navy needs to deliver robotic combat ships with conservative technologies that will work but DARPA programs can try to use risky technology. DARPA wants to integrate risky technology projects to accelerate the US Navy’s capabilities. Maintaining separate lines …
DARPAs new ADvanced Acclimation and Protection Tool for Environmental Readiness (ADAPTER) program aims to develop a travel adapter for the human body, an implantable or ingestible bioelectronic carrier that can provide warfighters control over their own physiology. The implant will …
DARPA is funding breakthroughs in tunneling. The Underminer project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of rapidly constructing tactical tunnel networks to provide secure logistics infrastructure to pre-position supplies or resupply troops as they move through an area. General Electric Research …
Astra rocket “1 of 3” has been vertical position at the Pacific Spaceport Complex – Alaska. Today the team is going through “wet dress rehearsal” in which the liquid propellant will be added to the rocket, but not fired. See …
Astra Space is developing pump-fed, liquid bipropellant propulsion engines for DARPA and NASA. The current vehicle, Rocket 3.0, is designed to have a payload capacity of approximately 100 kg to low earth orbit. The first Rocket 3.0 vehicle has completed …
Boeing canceled a vertical takeoff, horizontal landing (VTHL) rocket called the Phantom Express. It was going to be 100 feet (30 m) tall and have a 62 foot (19 m) wingspan. The Phantom express would use an Aerojet Rocketdyne AR-22 …
