TheVoiceOfJoyce The war in Ukraine has shown the Dept of Defense a new, more nimble method of warfare. It’s good for entrepreneurs with drone, computing and satellite skills. The question? Can the Government be nimble enough and recognize the need to knockout cheap Iranian missiles and clusters of missiles with savvy drones and AI? Start Ups are waiting!

Capella Space, a San Francisco-based start-up, is building a fleet of small, inexpensive satellites that can track enemy troops as they move at night, or under cloud cover that traditional optical satellites cannot see through.

Fortem Technologies, a small aerospace company in Utah, wants to supply the Pentagon with a new type of unmanned aircraft that can disable enemy drones.

HawkEye 360, a Virginia-based firm, has used private equity funds to launch its own satellites that use radio waves emitted by communications equipment and other electronic devices to detect the presence of enemy troop concentrations.

Each of these systems is getting real-world testing in the war in Ukraine, earning praise from top government officials there and validating investors who have been pouring money into the field.
