        Gryphon Technologies wins $14M DARPA task order to support the DRACO program
        by Staff Writers
        Washington DC (SPX) Sep 30, 2020

        The space domain is essential to modern commerce, scientific discovery, and national defense. Maintaining space domain awareness in cislunar space - the volume of space between the Earth and the Moon - will require a leap-ahead in propulsion technology.

        The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded Gryphon Technologies ("Gryphon"), the leading provider of digital engineering, cyber, cloud solutions, predictive analytics, and technical solutions and services to national security organizations, a $14M task order to support the Demonstration Rocket for Agile Cislunar Operations (DRACO) program.

        Specifically, Gryphon will support the development and demonstration of a High-Assay Low Enriched Uranium (HALEU) Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) system.

        The new rocket will enable the U.S. military to operate spacecraft in cislunar space, which is the region outside Earth's atmosphere and extending out to just beyond the Moon's orbit.

        "A successfully demonstrated NTP system will provide a leap-ahead in space propulsion capability, allowing agile and rapid transit over vast distances as compared to present propulsion approaches," said Dr. Tabitha Dodson, Gryphon's Chief Engineer on the support team and a national expert in NTP systems.

        "Gryphon is committed to providing high-end technical solutions to our nation's most critical national security challenges," said P.J. Braden, CEO of Gryphon.

        "We are proud to support DRACO and the development and demonstration of NTP, a significant technological advancement in efforts to achieve cislunar space awareness."

        Russia's S7 Space seeks to create reusable rocket
        Moscow (Sputnik) Sep 21, 2020
        Reports have said that the Russian state space corporation Roscosmos has commissioned an economic assessment of whether operations can be resumed on the floating spaceport Sea Launch, owned by the S7 AirSpace Corporation, with a return to launches planned for 2024. The Technology and Research Company that is part of S7 AirSpace Corporation, which owns the Sea Launch floating spaceport, has begun work to develop a light launch vehicle with a reversible first stage. "We have started developing ... read more
