Pentagon Ready to Spend More on Space Programs

Space.com reports that “the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency expects to spend some $800 million on space programs from 2015 through 2018, an increase of $130 million over what was projected at this time last year, Defense Department budget documents show.”  

“Nearly all of the targeted increase for DARPA’s Space Programs and Technology Office is backloaded into the outyears, the documents show. For 2015, the office is seeking nearly $180 million, only $7.5 million more than this year’s funding level.”  

“DARPA’s budget books break out funding on a program-by-program basis for the upcoming fiscal year only; outyear projections are provided only at the department level.”
