WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio (AFRL PR) – The BOLT II “In memory of Mike Holden” flight experiment, managed by the Air Force Research Laboratory/Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFRL/AFOSR), launched on the evening of March 21 from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. Dr. Michael Holden, who, up until his passing in 2019, had been a leader in the hypersonics field since the 1960s. The flight experiment successfully flew the planned flight path and acquired tremendous scientific data to further our understanding of boundary layer transition, turbulent heating, and drag at hypersonic conditions.
Myriota selected for its secure, private and home-grown technology that will improve military logistics management, situational awareness and battlefield effectiveness
ADELAIDE, Australia, 29 September 2021 (Myriota PR) – Myriota, the world leader in secure, low-cost and long-battery-life satellite connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it has secured a $5.48 million [US $3.97 million] contract with the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Innovation Hub to expand its Internet of Military Things (IoMT) solution.
With the federal government last year announcing that it would invest $7 billion [US $5.7 billion] on sovereign controlled space assets over the next ten years, the investment by the ADF is an important contract that will leverage Myriota’s cutting edge technology to improve military logistics management, situational awareness, training and battlefield effectiveness.
