The United States Air Force Space Fence system detected the breakup field from an anti-satellite test conducted by India during a scheduled endurance exercise of the new space surveillance radar. As a US satellite, MICROSAT-R was expected to pass through the un-cued surveillance fence, Space Fence automatically issued a "breakup alert" indicating there were multiple objects within close proximity
IBM Global Business Services is being awarded a $275,000,000 contract is to enable “trusted” manufacturing flows in contractor semiconductor fabrication facilities for US Department of Defence (DoD) programs. The contract is to enable a wide-range of associated leading-edge semiconductor technologies and services; and to create a trusted supply chain with the contractor, fully certified and accredited, to deliver classified and trusted mask and wafer fabrication within an “open” commercial environment, a USD DoD announcement said
The US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency is seeking to automate air-to-air combat, enabling reaction times at machine speeds and freeing pilots to concentrate on the larger air battle. No ArtificiaI Intelligence (AI) currently exists that can outduel a human pilot in a fighter jet in a high-speed, high-G dogfight, a DARPA release said
In what is claimed as the most significant development in aircraft design since the invention of wing warping by the Wright brothers, BAE Systems and the University of Manchester flew the MAGMA unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to demonstrate two innovative flow control technologies which could revolutionise future aircraft design. MAGMA, designed and developed by researchers at The University of Manchester in collaboration with engineers from BAE Systems, successfully trialled the two ‘flap-free technologies earlier this month at the Llanbedr Airfield, UK
In order to meet the digitalisation challenges of a diverse audience of stakeholders, in a robust, secure and cost-effective way, EUROYARDS members (Chantiers de lAtlantique, Damen Shipyards Group, Fincantieri, Lürssen, Meyer Werft, Naval Group and Navantia) joined forces to harmonise data management solutions and standards. This ambitious project will seek for the full cooperation and engagement of all maritime stakeholders, including shipowners, shipbuilders, suppliers and classification societies, and it is supported by SEA Europe, the Shipyards and Maritime Equipment Association, according to a Damen Shipyards release

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has begun to solicit for new materials and technology to accelerate R&D of hypersonic air vehicles and platforms. “The Defense Sciences Office (DSO) at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of high performance leading edges for hypersonic air platforms,” US Department of Defense said Monday
France has awarded a hypersonic glider demonstrator project to ArianeGroup, which will be conducted under overall project management by the French defence procurement agency, DGA, as announced by Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly on 21st January. The programme is designated V-max (véhicule manoeuvrant expérimental or experimental manoeuvring vehicle)
Boeing yesterday conducted the first test flight of its electric-powered autonomous passenger air vehicle (PAV) prototype in the US city of Manassas, Virginia. The PAV prototype completed a controlled takeoff, hover and landing during the flight, which tested the vehicle's autonomous functions and ground control systems
The US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is preparing to launch a 150 kg satellite into low-earth orbit to qualify a new type of Membrane Reflectarray Antenna (MRA) which could lay the groundwork for space-based internet. DARPAs Radio Frequency Risk Reduction Deployment Demonstration (R3D2) is set for launch in late February to space-qualify the MRA
The United States Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) has awarded a project task assignment for the Teaming-Enabled Architectures for Manned-Unmanned Systems (TEAMS) prototype program to GE Aviation. The project is under the authority of the Base Vertical Lift Consortium Project
