Спутник технологический. TacSat 2. [Редактировать]

Экспериментальный космический аппарат тактической разведки ВВС США. МКА создается Пентагоном под общим контролем Управления по трансформированию сил (Office of Force Transformation, OF), подчиненного непосредственно министру обороны и предназначенного для внедрения передовых концепций развития Вооруженных сил США. Основные разработчики МКА – Исследовательская лаборатория AFRL и Центр ракетных и космических систем ВВС США, Военно-морская исследовательская лаборатория NRL, а также частные компании. В проекте участвуют Управление космических программ Армии, Космическое командование ВВС, исследовательские организации Пентагона и виды Вооруженных сил США, а также NASA и JPL.

На аппарат установлена аппаратура для проведения 11 экспериментов, в т.ч. по видовой и радиоэлектронной разведке (РЭР) целей с передачей информации на малогабаритные станции, установленные непосредственно при штабах объединенных группировок войск в различных районах Земли.
