SEAKR Engineering Wins DARPA Contract to Continue Autonomous Satellite Mission Tech Development

SEAKR Engineering has won a two-year, $60.5 million contract to further develop supercomputing processing hardware in the next phases of a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency program aiming to integrate commercial technology into small military satellites.

DARPA will initially obligate $8.06 million to the Centennial, Colorado-based space electronics company for phases 2 and 3 of the Blackjack Pit Boss initiative, the Department of Defense said Friday.

The agency chose SEAKR, BAE Systems and Scientific Systems in October 2019 to conceptualize the Pit Boss autonomous mission management platform to support the Blackjack constellation demo project in low-Earth orbit.

SEAKR said at the time its partners for the effort are Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), Kythera Space Solutions, NKrypt, Applied Technology Associates and Advanced Solutions.
