24 PCB007 MAGAZINE I SEPTEMBER 2019 MilAero007 Highlights science in real-world applications, are poised to have a huge impact on national security. Extending Field of View in Advanced Imaging Systems E The military relies on advanced imaging sys- tems for a number of critical capabilities and applications from intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and situational awareness to weapon sights. These powerful systems enable defense users to capture and analyze visual data, providing key insights both on and off the battlefield. AGI and ANSYS Collaboration Streamlines Hypersonic Weapon Design E To engineer the U.S. military's next-generation missile defense system, Analytical Graphics Inc. (AGI) and ANSYS are incorporating high-fideli- ty, multiphysics simulations with multi-domain mission-level modeling into early stages of mis- sile defense system development—effectively enabling warfighters to combat high-speed, highly maneuverable hypersonic weapons. Alta Devices Scaling up Solar Production to Disrupt Economics of Small Satellite Manufacturing E Alta Devices is scaling up solar production to meet the growing demand for low-earth orbit- ing (LEO) small satellites (SmallSats), which will all rely on the sun for power. NASA Asks American Companies to Deliver Supplies for Artemis Moon Missions E In another major step toward landing Ameri- can astronauts on the lunar surface by 2024, NASA is asking industry to respond to a Re- quest for Proposals to deliver cargo, science experiments, and supplies to the Gateway. BAE Systems to Enhance F-35 Electronic Warfare Capabilities E BAE Systems has received a Block 4 Modern- ization contract award from Lockheed Martin to enhance the offensive and defensive elec- tronic warfare (EW) capabilities of the F-35 Lightning II fifth-generation fighter aircraft. Missile Defense Agency's Long-range Discrimination Radar Reaches Major Milestones E The radar system will serve as a critical sensor within MDA's layered defense strategy to protect the U.S. homeland from ballistic missile attacks. Artificial Intelligence and Space Exploration E From utilizing machine learning to advanc- ing space exploration, optics technology leads the chart toward our scientific and outer-space frontiers. Digicom Electronics Introduces Power Converter for On-site Aircraft Maintenance E Digicom Electronics Inc. has launched a new portable, lightweight, 400-Hz power converter. Innovators from NASA, Lockheed Martin Space, and Lenovo to Keynote SMTA International 2019 E The SMTA will be featuring three inspiring keynote presentations scheduled during SMTA International, September 22–26, 2019 in Rose- mont, Illinois, USA. National Security in a Quantum World E Imperial College London's security institute recently hosted an event on how advances in quantum technology, which applies quantum
