DARPA's Advanced Space Technology Program (ASTP) encompasses the development and operation of the Pegasus (air-launched) and Taurus (standard small) launch vehicles and the 'lightsats' Microsat, Macsat, and Darpasat, as well as satellite subsystems, communications, optical-components, and submarine laser communication technology development programs. An assessment is made of the benefits derivable from these technologies by both the defense and civilian space communities.
