To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science has entered into a cooperative research and development agreement with the U.S. Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command to further develop technology for military ground vehicles. The Army will offer resources, expertise and laboratories to help the public benefit corporation characterize materials and their applications, TTSA said Thursday.

TTSA noted its projecs in various areas such as material science, quantum physics and space-time metric engineering have the potential to increase performance and survivability of different Army platforms. The company aims to share technological discoveries with the service branch’s ground vehicle systems center and survivability and protection program.

“Our partnership with TTSA serves as an exciting, non-traditional source for novel materials and transformational technologies to enhance our military ground system capabilities,” said Joseph Cannon of the Army Futures Command.

Founded in 2017, TTSA promotes collaboration between the commercial, academic and entertainment sectors in a push to help the public better understand science and technology.
