We're thinking beyond the status quo and exploring what is possible with space transport -- that means we're not limiting ourselves to simply moving packaged items. We want to know what is possible with Quick Reaction Forces. Can we deploy humans where they need to go and make the most agile force possible? Can we set up a space resupply system that can efficiently and accurately drop packages, supplies, and equipment to specified targets? These are the questions we are asking.
The DOD wants all the best tools available to be in its toolbox. What commercial data sources, ground systems, launch, rapid reconstitution, satellite technologies, data, and multi-level security are available or can be developed to supplement military capability?

The latest off-the-shelf technology can solve these problems and present a more streamlined process for ground-level data collection. We propose an integrated and disposable sensor network that can be delivered via drone at a fraction of the speed that it currently takes to deploy ground sensors.
Marines require a sophisticated understanding of where adversary forces are located within their battlespace. Manning restraints preclude reconnaissance patrols from being able to monitor large swaths of an assigned area of responsibility. Unattended ground sensors are an ideal solution. Each sensor is dispersed by hand along key roads or terrain to provide valuable data on where and when an enemy might be moving.
