The Pentagon is moving ahead with new military jetpack prototypes | Task and Purpose

Must Read

The Defense Department’s top tech visionaries are once more working to make the  U.S. military’s dream of infantrymen with jetpacks a reality through a pair of new contracts.

According to a DARPA official, “many” small businesses have been chosen by the organization to win Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) funding awards “to create flight test prototypes” for the program’s Portable Personal Air Mobility System. The Portable Personal Air Mobility System, which could reach ranges of “at least” 5 kilometers on the battlefield for a single operator, was the subject of a request for proposals from DARPA’s small business programs office in March 2021, according to an official announcement. The agency stated in its initial notice that Phase II would culminate in “a ground and/or flight test effort that establishes the viability of an operational version of the proposed system.” The outcome of the potential unnamed prototypes could determine whether DARPA moves forward with the Portable Personal Air Mobility System program.
