The Department of National Defense (DND) Canada awarded Galvion a contract for Batlskin Caiman ballistic helmet systems.
The one-year framework contract will see the delivery of around 2,100 helmets and 4,200 helmet covers, in two patterns, along with spare parts. There is an option to extend to 5 years, with delivery of up to 8,400 additional helmets and accessories.
The Royal Navy took delivery of new jet-powered Banshee drones as it moved ahead with the use of remotely-piloted air systems (RPAS).
The Banshee simulates threatening aircraft to help the Royal Navy stay at the cutting-edge of air defenses.
At the IEEE Inertial international symposium on inertial sensors and systems, Dr Mark Marshall, Chief Engineer at Silicon Sensing, presented a paper on the construction and inertial performance of the company’s smallest gyro – the Pinpoint.
The United States Air Force (USAF) chose Anduril Industries autonomous aerial systems Ghost and Ghost-X to enhance its autonomy capabilities.
The defense technology company was awarded two contracts from the USAF worth $8 million.
L3Harris used a homing and docking solution to successfully launch and recover an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) from an underway submarine.
L3Harris worked closely with the U.S. Navy, and is believed to be the first company to perform a Torpedo Tube Launch and Recovery (TTL&R) successfully, leveraging their proven Iver4 AUV technology.
LiquidPiston has been awarded a three-year, $35 million contract to support hybrid power system development.
The contract was awarded by AFWERX, a Technology Directorate within the Air Force Research Laboratory, in partnership with AFLCMC, the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center.
With this award, LiquidPiston will design, develop, and qualify a 90+ horsepower heavy-fueled rotary engine, which will be incorporated into a modular Rotary Engine Hybrid Power System. This engine and platform can serve as the “power pack” for a variety of applications of interest to the Air Force, including unmanned aerial systems (UAS) propulsion, human- and cargo-carrying Organic Resupply Bus (ORB) capabilities, mobile operating bases, and vehicle auxiliary power units (APUs).
