NASA Won't Release DART Mission Report due to ITAR

The Associated Press reports that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced that it will not release its investigative report on the failure of the Demonstration of Autonomous Rendezvous Technology (DART) spacecraft that occurred in April 2005 because the report contains information subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

Launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in April 2005, the DART spacecraft was intended to test the technologies needed for a spacecraft to locate, communicate with and maneuver close to another spacecraft without human intervention. The project ended prematurely, however, when the spacecraft placed itself in the retirement phase before completing all planned operations.
