4. Revolutionizing Hypersonic Technologies
And while Darkstar may be fictional, its capabilities are real. We recently completed a successful hypersonic flight test on ARRW, a defense system designed for the U.S. Air Force.
5. Test Driving Tomorrow
At a large-scale military exercise in the Pacific, we provided a glimpse into the future of Joint All-Domain Operations, an integrated approach where systems operate together across land, sea, air, space and cyber.
7. Power On!
The Orion spacecraft that will carry astronauts back to the moon in 2024 turned on its computers for the first time allowing the team to test critical crew modules that are considered the ‘brain’ and ‘heart’ of the spacecraft.
10. Delivering Mission Critical Capabilities
The U.S. Marine Corps achieved initial operational capability for the CH-53K King Stallion, which is a major milestone for the most modern and powerful helicopter in the Defense Department inventory.
11. Harnessing the Power of Lasers
The U.S. Navy conducted a historic test of our new Layered Laser Defense, an all-electric, high-energy system that can counter unmanned aerial systems and fast-attack boats with a high-power laser.
