A new type of computer for the military: A computer for space exploration
The Pentagon is developing a new type, called a “space systems operating system,” to help power the military’s new fleet of space vehicles.
The software will be used to enable the military to track and intercept enemy spacecraft, as well as launch satellites into space.
The Pentagon wants to be able to launch satellites from its space vehicles with “minimal disruption,” and the new software would allow for that kind of capability.
The new operating system is expected to be released in 2021, according to the Pentagon.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is developing the new operating systems.
The space system will use a “dynamic space environment,” according to DARPA.
It would have a number of capabilities to track space objects and communicate with them.
“This space system could be used by a variety of users to perform various missions including tracking spacecraft, space weather observations, tracking ballistic missile trajectories, or tracking satellites,” DARPA wrote in its solicitation for a commercial license for the new space system.
DARPA is working with Lockheed Martin and Boeing to develop the system.
The program is designed to support the military by “supporting the rapid deployment of satellites and other payloads to space, including in the context of missions in space and in the vicinity of the military space station,” DARP wrote.
The Department of Defense plans to launch its own space system sometime in 2021.
In the meantime, it’s up to the military agencies to work together to develop and integrate this new operating software into their systems.
DARPSSpaceSystems has the potential to be a big deal for the Pentagon’s space program.
The U.S. military is investing heavily in developing and deploying new space vehicles to protect U.,S.
personnel and interests from the effects of space weather, and the Pentagon is hoping to launch a space system with a crewed version sometime in the future.
