Tesla and future Twitter CEO Elon Musk seems to be working on so many projects that no one can keep up.

Today, it was reported that Musk was working on a new project with the Pentagon.

The deal follows a close relationship that Musk has with the Pentagon after he secured a $160 million contract with them for missile tracking devices.

Musk received a significant amount of publicity after he donated Starlink technology to Ukraine to get their internet up and running after Russia invaded the country.

Now, Musk is working with the Pentagon to use rockets from SpaceX to drop soldiers from space to use in emergency situations.

The project could be used to formulate a quick response to situations like the embassy attack in Benghazi.

The Pentagon is collaborating with Elon Musk’s company SpaceX to investigate the possibility of using the company’s rockets to drop troops and equipment into global flashpoints.

The military’s work with the private space company covers a wide array of research initiatives, according to a partially redacted research agreement, originally obtained by The Intercept via a Freedom of Information Act request and made public on June 19.

The Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (pdf), outlines the joint efforts of U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) and SpaceX “to collaboratively investigate commercial space transportation capabilities as a transportation mode to expedite global delivery of Department of Defense (DoD) material and personnel.”

USTRANSCOM is one of the military’s unified combatant commands. It provides for the military’s transportation needs, and heavily relies on commercial infrastructure and technologies to carry out its mission of projecting and sustaining military power.
