DARPA MuS2 developing Muon Source to detect shielded nuclear contraband, to objects deeply buried up to thousands of meters below the earth’s surface

Muons are subatomic particles that behave a lot like electrons but are around 200 times heavier. As the US Department of Energy explains, “Muons created in the atmosphere constantly hit every inch of the Earth’s surface and pass through almost any substance.”   Many scientists have noted that measuring the …

Space threats require Space Based Sensors (SBS) to enhance Space Situational Awareness (SSA)

There has been an exponential growth of space objects, including orbital debris that has increased the in-orbit collision risk. In the year 2019 alone, 385 smallsats were launched reaching a value close to 2900 in mid-2020 and still rapidly increasing. Moreover, taking into account all the applications filed by satellite …

Multimode propulsion provides enhanced capabilities from Warships, and UAVs to spacecraft and space missions

Most spacecraft propulsion concepts can be classified into two categories: chemical and electric. Chemical propulsion relies on chemical reactions and can produce high thrust, but requires a large amount of fuel. Electric propulsion uses electromagnetic fields to accelerate ionized gases and is very fuel-efficient, but produces small amounts of thrust …

DARPA Blackjack is Autonomous LEO Satellite Constellation with mix of commercial and military microsatellites for space security

Historically, DoD satellites have been custom-designed to specific mission sets with lengthy design and/or enhancement cycles at a high cost per spacecraft. The renaissance of commercial space has led to the design of numerous LEO constellations whose design and manufacturing methodologies potentially offer economies of scale previously unavailable. DARPA is …
