The Advanced Extremely High Frequency satellite program is designed to provide global, secure, protected, survivable communications for the Defense Department. Capabilities include real-time video, battlefield maps and targeting data. Lockheed Martin is the lead company; Northrop Grumman provides the payload processors and various antennas for this military version of the A2100. Aerojet provides the electric propulsion system. The EHF core structure is integrated with electronic propulsion subsystem at Lockheed Martin Space & Technology Center at John C. Stennis Space Center, MS. Lockheed Martin image.

SBIRS-H

SBIRS-H
Stennis Space Center, MS, USA   |   component assembly

The Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) program is a global satellite system designed to be used for missile warning, missile defense, technical intelligence, and battlespace characterization. It consists of high altitude (SBIRS High) and low altitude (SBIRS Low) components. SBIRS-H includes satellites in geosynchronous earth orbits and infrared sensors in Highly Elliptical Earth Orbits. SBIRS-L includes sensors on satellites in Low Earth Orbits. The propulsion subsystem was developed and tested at Lockheed Martin's Mississippi Space & Technology Center, MS. The subsystem consists of 18 reaction engine assemblies, a fuel tank, two oxidizer tanks, and a liquid apogee engine. The design is based on Lockheed Martin's flight-proven A2100 geosynchronous spacecraft series. Lockheed Martin image
