The U.S. Army’s agreement with Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars Academy will allow sharing of resources and research results, according to a news release.
A TTSA news release on Oct. 17 says the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement provides access to laboratories, expertise, support and resources from the Army. It is not a traditional contract, and it won’t pay TTSA anything, according to a report from thedrive.com.
The agreement is meant to develop enhanced capabilities for Army ground vehicles.
“This cooperative research agreement brings additional, critically important expertise that is necessary to advance the state-of-the-art in both our near and long-term technology areas of study,” according to Steve Justice, TTSA’s COO and Aerospace Division Director.
“While the Army has specific military performance interests in the research, much of the work is expected to have dual-use application in support of TTSA’s path to commercialization and public benefit mission,” Justice said.
Dr. Joseph Cannon of U.S. Army Futures Command said, “At the Army’s Ground Vehicle Systems Center, we look forward to this partnership and the potential technical innovations forthcoming.”
The entire 26-page agreement was posted on the Washington Examiner’s website.
