Elon Musk Set To Deepen Ties With Pentagon

via New York Times Events

SpaceX’s Starlink satellite service completed successful US military tests in the Arctic, demonstrating reliability and high performance in harsh conditions.

The tests suggest Starlink could become a crucial asset in the region’s growing strategic competition with Russia and China.

The potential contracts with the Space Force could expand SpaceX’s space portfolio. (Trending: Democrat Accused Of Blocking Release of Jeffrey Epstein Flight Logs)

“We tested in some very high winds and very cold temperatures,” said Brian Beal, principal engineer with the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Integrated Capabilities Directorate.

“That all went smoothly though,” he recalled.

Adding, “Once we got the terminals mounted securely to withstand high winds, they worked great with no issues.”

“We have made the results of the Arctic experiments available to many parties within the Air Force,” confirmed Beal.

“This is good news,” said Leonor Tomero, a vice president at JA Green.

“We need faster and additional communication layers to strengthen strategic deterrence,” added Tomero.

“SpaceX already has 233 satellites in polar orbit,” said Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer and astrophysicist.

The company is already involved in Pentagon contracts and has been awarded a contract to provide Starlink satellite communications to the Ukrainian military.

Additionally, former US Northern Command chief Terrence O’Shaughnessy, now with SpaceX, has been involved in exploring customized technologies for the Arctic.
