Elon Musk’s SpaceX has won a $149 million contract to build missile-tracking satellites for the Pentagon, the US Space Development Agency (SDA) announced.

SpaceX will use its Starlink assembly plant in Redmond, Washington, to build four satellites fitted with a wide-angle infrared missile-tracking sensor supplied by a subcontractor. 

The announcement also includes another $193 million going to technology company L3 Harris Technologies, which will build another four satellites – both firms are set to launch their devices by fall 2022. 

The awards are part of the SDA’s first phase to procure satellites to detect and track missiles like intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), which can travel long distances and are challenging to track and intercept.

But on Tuesday, more than a year later, Tabitha crawled from her wooden transport crate onto the sand in
