Libya: Egypt and the United Arab Emirates launched covert airstrikes against Islamist-allied militias fighting for control of Tripoli, Libya, twice in the past week, the New York Times reported. Washington was not informed of the strikes planned by the regional allies, potentially further straining ties with Cairo.  Their involvement illustrates how Libya is becoming another location for a proxy war in the Middle East, where Qatar has allegedly supported Islamist forces in the country, in a continuation of the country’s policy of supporting Islamic movements and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Smart Skin: Future aircraft may be able to sense their own “health” with surfaces that act in a way similar to human skin, according to researchers at BAE Systems.  The company is investigating a “smart skin” concept that would involve the use of thousands of micro-sensors that would be embedded into aircraft, according to a company release. Those sensors, or motes, would then detect wind speed, temperatures and physical strain.

Syria: The U.S. appears to be laying the groundwork for a possible expansion of its military air campaign beyond Iraq and into Syria. The WSJ reported yesterday that the Pentagon is preparing to send surveillance aircraft, including drones, into Syrian airspace to gather intelligence on Islamist targets—one of the first tangible signs that the Obama administration may be preparing for military operations in the country against the group calling itself Islamic State.

DoD Budget: The Pentagon might have to retool its $555 billion 2015 budget proposal to account for the threats posed by and actions taken against the Islamic State, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday.  This comes as he and Gen. Martin Dempsey said Thursday that U.S. airstrikes against Islamic State will be limited to Iraq for the time being, but the threat eventually will have to be confronted at its core in Syria, thus expanding the scope of operations against the terrorist group.

XS-1: The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has created an Experimental Spaceplane (XS-1) program to develop a reusable unmanned vehicle to provide aircraft-like access to space and deploy small satellites. XS-1 will deploy satellites faster and more affordably, and develop technology for next-generation hypersonic vehicles. The program seeks to reduce the cost of access to space for 3,000- to 5,000-pound payloads to less than $5 million per flight.

Russia: Russia sent dozens of aid trucks into rebel-held eastern Ukraine on Friday without Kiev’s approval, triggering the Ukrainian government to declare the move a “direct invasion” on Friday. The United States and European allies have warned that any crossing of the border by Russian military vehicles would be considered an invasion and the Pentagon called on Russia to remove the convoy as of early Friday morning.
