Small Businesses Sought for Space Accelerator Program

The Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate is reaching out to small businesses to explore space-based intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance technologies. The service is looking for companies that can fill technology gaps by working alongside the Catalyst Space Accelerator program, which is a public-private partnership. KiMar Gartman, director of the accelerator, said the research

The New World of Counter-Drone Technology

Attempts to prevent unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from surveillance, terrorist, or military attacks involve methods ranging from electronic jamming, to nets, to bullets, and even to birds of prey. Only a little more than a quarter century ago, UAVs were largely just a curiosity, with little support from the operational military. That began to change

Low-Cost Lightweight Hyperspectral Imagers Bring Sophisticated Imaging Capability to Drones

In a new study, researchers used 3D printing and low-cost parts to create an inexpensive hyperspectral imager that is light enough to use onboard drones. They offer a recipe for creating these imagers, which could make the traditionally expensive analytical technique more widely accessible. Hyperspectral imagers produce images like a traditional color camera but detect
