True Anomaly Awarded Space Force Contract to Further Security in Space Domain

True Anomaly, Inc., the technology company developing advanced hardware and software systems to ensure the sustainable security of space, today announced it has been awarded a $1.6M Direct-to-Phase II contract by SpaceWERX focused on Tactically Responsive Space ("TacRS"). Under this contract, the company will be tasked to address the most pressing challenges in the Department of the Air Force ("DAF"). These efforts aim to expand the capabilities of the company's Jackal Autonomous Orbital Vehicle ("AOV") to meet the demanding requirements of the TacRS mission set.

True Anomaly will focus on three main deliverables under this contract: rapid payload integration, the demonstration of increased capability in the Jackal AOV responsive propulsion system, and advancement of the baseline technologies for geosynchronous orbit. The company will aid the Air Force Research Laboratory and SpaceWERX in meeting its goals of increasing mission flexibility and a swift adaptation to evolving operational needs, and continue enhancing the system's performance envelope for the upcoming VICTUS HAZE mission and beyond.

"The ideal vehicle for a Tactically Responsive Space mission provides flexibility and a high degree of maneuverability to support operations across multiple orbits and inclinations," said Even Rogers, CEO and co-founder of True Anomaly. "True Anomaly's Jackal Autonomous Orbital Vehicle was designed for this exact purpose. Under this contract, our team will continue to accelerate and enhance the Jackal AOV's capabilities so that the DoD is equipped with technology that will rapidly respond to the domain's changing threat landscape."

This news follows True Anomaly's recent announcement that it was selected for a $30M U.S. Space Force Space Systems Command contract for the VICTUS HAZE TacRS mission. Additionally, the company is supporting Gravitics as subcontractor on its $1.7M SBIR Direct-to-Phase II contract from SpaceWERX.
