The Deep Space Advanced Radar Capability (DARC) contract, was awarded to Northrop Grumman Corporation through the Space Enterprise Consortium (SpEC) by Space Systems Command (SSC). The request for prototype was released as a part of the larger DARC program created to enhance our nation's capabilities in Space Domain Awareness (SDA). The solutions created through DARC will be vital in creating a resilient space enterprise.
How often do you think about the microchips in your smartphone? Or the ones in your laptop? How about your car, which can have up to 100 microchips to control everything from touchscreens to transmissions. The answer is probably never. We take these tiny electronics for granted. Just like the air we breathe and water we drink. It’s just there. Except when it’s not.
OTAs offer an alternative to the lengthier contracting process governed by the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) by removing onerous requirements that small businesses advancing dual-use technologies have trouble fulfilling.
Maintaining security while keeping our soldiers safe is our nation’s ultimate mission. Virtual Reality (VR) is the way to do that. Through VR we can train our soldiers in replica battlefields without unnecessarily putting them in danger.

In this exclusive interview with S2MARTS Director, Brooke Pyne, we dive into the brand new OTA called S2MARTS Research. Brooke helps to cover the ins and outs of S2MARTS Research, discussing what makes the OTA so unique, how much membership costs, and much more.
5G is the newest generation in wireless network technology with speeds 10x faster than 4G, and in some areas being up to 100x faster. Telecommunications companies are frantically racing to increase their 5G coverage, but why are countries also competing to dominate this new, contested spectrum space?
