SPACE EXPLORATION - NASA report identifies cost-effective approaches to dealing with orbital debris - Decreasing the time satellites remain in orbit after the end of their missions is one of the most cost-effective ways to address the orbital debris problem, a NASA report concluded.Thereport, released by NASA’s Office of Technology, Policy and Strategy May 20, is a follow up toa March 2023 report that focused on the effectiveness of debris remediation techniques, or ways to remove debris. The new report expanded its scope to include strategies for debris mitigation, or preventing the creation of debris, as well as tracking improvements.REPORT: Cost and Benefit Analysis of Mitigating, Tracking, and Remediating Orbital Debris - https://lnkd.in/essaNmqNhttps://lnkd.in/egHjfXCA

    Inside BlueHalo’s quest to make the Pentagon’s laser weapon dreams a reality - After decades of research and development, the U.S. military is officially using laser weapons in combat zones overseas. - The U.S. Armyrecently disclosedthat the service had not only deployed a pair of 20-kilowatt palletized high-energy laser (P-HEL) systems—built on Virginia-based defense contractor BlueHalo’s Locust Laser Weapon System—abroad to protect U.S. troops from hostile drones in recent months, but that those systems hadproven successfulagainst incoming threats in the Middle East in the first-ever use of laser weapons in combat. - BlueHalo has distinguished itself from legacy defense contractors in developing, testing, and fielding an operational laser weapon in just under five years. The rapid development and deployment of such a complicated weapon system represents an incredible turnaround given the slow and arduous process that often defines Pentagon weapons procurement.BLUEHALO Homepage: https://lnkd.in/e68zG5Pm - https://lnkd.in/eFxqJW6p

    Chinese team proposes invisible expansion in disputed South China Sea using tunnels - A team of Chinese scientists say they have come up with a way to build tunnels under artificial islands in the South China Sea,which Beijing uses to reinforce its claim to large swathes of contested territory.These islands are small and overcrowded, especially in theSpratly reef chainwhere there are competing territorial claims from China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines. - It was previously thought that the soft coral sand in the region was unsuitable for below-ground construction, but a research team from the Ocean University of China claims to have solved the problem with a new method for reinforcing the islands and their surrounds, theSouth China Morning Postreported. - The method involves injecting a slurry mixed with fine cement particles into the ground, solidifying the substrate and allowing safe tunnel construction without water seepage or risk of collapse. - According toSCMP, the team suggested using this method to build large tunnels beneath China’s artificial islands in the region, and that this could bolster Beijing’s presence without provoking neighbouring countries. - The engineering team, led by Chen Xuguang, noted in a peer-reviewed paper published in April by the Ocean University of China’s journal: “As the functions required of the islands or reefs increase, more personnel are stationed on them and the living facilities on the islands are facing shortages.”https://lnkd.in/eu9vixPM

    After Israel defense, US sees chance to entice Gulf allies on missile shield - WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States hopes defense meetings in Riyadh on Wednesday will help advance a long-standing goal of building a regional missile shield, bolstered by Israel's successful defense against waves of incoming Iranian missiles and drones last month, U.S. officials say. - The May 22 meeting in Riyadh of the U.S.-Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) comes just over a month after the United States, Britain and other allies helped Israel knock down hundreds of missiles and drones, mostly launched from inside Iran. - The meeting also comes against the backdrop of missile and drone attacks by Yemen's Houthis against commercial shipping in the Red Sea. Interceptions by U.S. and British warships have also demonstrated the power of Western air defenses. - A senior U.S. defense official, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said Gulf allies recognized that the successful defense of Israel was a result of years of defense integration among Israel's partners.https://lnkd.in/e5FrxhM5

    China’s $8.5 billion in steel spurs Latin America toward tariffs - One after another, Latin American nations are following in the footsteps of the US and Europe by imposing prohibitive tariffs on Chinese imports — a strain in what’s been an otherwise cozy relationship. - The Latin American and Chinese relationship is being tested by a global turn toward protectionism, and a flood of Chinese imports that threatens to put Latin American steel producers out of business and risk a combined 1.4 million jobs. - Pushing back against China, however, can be fraught with risks — particularly for smaller export-driven economies that rely on Chinese demand for their raw material sales, from cherries to copper. - There are plenty of examples of Beijing suspending purchases and investments in reaction to what it sees as unfair and unilateral measures. There was a brief period during which China banned soybean products from Argentina in response to wide-ranging anti-dumping measures. Following the 2018 arrest of a Huawei executive in Vancouver, China blocked canola shipments from two Canadian companies. - https://lnkd.in/eUwZsS82
