Airborne-NextGen 03.12.24: Pulsejets R Back!, Mach 5?, DJI v Congress

Also: 1-gram Remote ID Module, Starship Ready?, Ampaire Acquires Magpie, Clay Lacy-Starlink

The legendary sound of the old V-1 of WWII fame is back, except this time it's powering an uncrewed, combat-ready, UAV. 

The autonomous aspects of drones have finally caught up to the point where having a super cheap, simplistic jet engine makes sense. North American Wave Engine Corporation got some civilian attention with the publication of its civilian-spec pulsejet engines. Stratolaunch is reporting that it has successfully completed the first powered flight of the Talon-A test vehicle, TA-1. This first flight represents a major milestone in the development of the country's first privately funded, reusable hypersonic test capability. Chinese drone manufacturer DJI took issue with a recent move in Congress, the "Countering CCP Drones Act", introduced by Elise Stefanik. The legislation would add DJI's parent company, Shenzhen Da-Jiang Innovations Sciences and Technologies, as well as any subsidiary or affiliate to the list of banned brands of communications equipment under the Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Act of 2019. That would absolutely kneecap DJI's presence in the US market... All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-NextGen!!!
