June 19, 2018 - Teledyne Energy Systems is one of 10 companies selected by NASA to develop advanced technologies to collect, process and use space-based resources to enable human missions to the Moon and Mars under Appendix D of the agency’s Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnership-2 (NextSTEP-2) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA). For this effort, NASA encouraged responders to find new applications for existing terrestrial technology that could result in lower costs for future human exploration missions in space. Teledyne Energy Systems has been selected to develop an impurity-tolerant electrolysis system to generate hydrogen and oxygen from water extracted from Lunar and Martian environments to sustain human life and fuel power systems.
June 18, 2018 – Teledyne Brown Engineering has been awarded a $79.6 million Task Order by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command / U.S. Army Forces Strategic Command to design and build affordable, flexible target missiles used for test and evaluation. The Tactical Range Air Defense Missile (TACRAM) effort is planned to begin immediately and could extend through April 2025.
June 14, 2018 - Teledyne Brown Engineering has refurbished the Solidification Using a Baffle in Sealed Ampoules (SUBSA) furnace experiment for NASA which is now prepared to begin active operations on-board the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory.
