But the researchers at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) are looking for technology that does just that.
DARPA is looking for computer chip and electronics manufacturers to help it build the wireless communication system is will use to facilitate its Future, Fast, Flexible, Fractionated, Free-Flying Spacecraft or System F6 satellites. The F6 program is intended deploy what DARPA calls “fractionated modules" of current all-in-one satellites."
