Wanted: companies to build spacecraft, sensor payloads, and on-board data processing for small satellites
WASHINGTON – U.S. intelligence researchers are surveying industry for companies able to design and build small satellites (smallsats) spacecraft, sensor payloads, on-board computer processing, and other subsystem technologies that range in maturity from basic concepts to demonstration by simulation, writes John Keller for Military & Aerospace Electronics.
The Intelligent Aerospace take:
April 11, 2019-Officials of the U.S. Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency say in its request for information it is looking for industry to identify candidate smallsats technologies with game-changing potential, and validate these technologies in space or in a laboratory space simulation. Technologies must demonstrate capabilities not previously demonstrated with smallsats or in space. Interested companies should email 10-page white papers in .PDF format no later than 31 May 2019 to IARPA at email@example.com.
