TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 26, 2017 — Boeing (NYSE: BA) will design, build and test a demonstration spacecraft for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in support of efforts to use a hypersonic aircraft that would bring national security payloads to space with less cost and time spent, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.
