DoD Looking For Solutions To Deliver Cargo "To, From, and Through Space"
Steve Skotte
DoD is looking for novel responsive space delivery. In a solicitation, the Defense Innovation Unit said, "The Department of Defense (DoD) seeks novel commercial solutions that enable responsive and precise point-to-point delivery of cargo to, from, and through space." The problem is that "The ability to rapidly re-constitute space-based capabilities or re-supply payloads or cargo at precise locations for time-sensitive logistics (in-space or terrestrially) is a critical but presently non-existent capability that contributes to sustained U.S. economic leadership in space, and builds an enduring advantage that may be leveraged during times of crisis or conflict." It will be enlightening to see what concepts come out of this.
