ASLON-45 Re-Awarded to Aevum

After the weird situation where the US Air Force awarded Vector a contract the same week Vector shut down, the ASLON-45 mission is headed Aevum’s way.

Aevum is working on an autonomous air launch platform, and has been reluctant to release many technical details yet, so there’s really no telling how far along they are currently. The launch date is set for late 2021, so Aevum must have some confidence they can get there in two years.

Then again, everyone thinks that.

I will say that as far as ASLON-45 goes, some of the names that you would think would launch this mission didn’t bid for it, so that’s why you’re seeing names that are not yet showing actual hardware.
