The Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) announced an award to HRL Laboratories, LLC for the ASTIR program. The goal of ASTIR is to demonstrate a fundamentally new imaging radar architecture through basic research on “…innovative imaging radar architectures that can provide high frame-rate, three dimensional imaging of objects through adverse obscurants (fog, smoke, heavy rain, etc.) without requiring target or platform motion.”
HRL Laboratories, LLC announced today that it will be developing new materials for hypersonic vehicles under the Materials Development for Platforms (MDP) program through the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). These new materials aim to reduce the weight and cost of vehicle aeroshells while withstanding the extreme environment encountered during hypersonic flight.
In recognition of exceptional achievement in systems engineering and systems science, IEEE will award Dr. Paul Kaminski the Simon Ramo Medal at a ceremony gala on June 20th, 2015.
The award honors the immediate and long term impact that Dr. Kaminski has had on the United States precision strike combat advantage. His visionary recommendations focusing on a dramatically changing security landscape in the 1970s, 80s and 90s provided us with the force multiplying technologies that have set us apart over the last two decades; networked precision strike, stealth attack and persistent surveillance capabilities for maneuver forces.
On February 6th, 2015, HRL Laboratories dedicated one of their laboratory spaces to the memory of Dr. Joseph Colburn. His family was invited to receive this honor in his name and they were able to visit the new space, which will now influence and hopefully inspire new generations of scientists.
