The MiTSPI nTTU-2600 is designed for use in SWaP-constrained applications such as missile tests.
Next-Gen OPIR Block 0 moves on after thermal vacuum tests
Raytheon Intelligence & Space announced on 9 February that it has completed thermal vacuum tests of its sensor payload for the Next Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared Geosynchronous (Next-Gen OPIR) Block 0 geosynchronous (GEO) missile warning satellites.
Testing for space survivability was completed on 27 January.
Next-Gen OPIR is a Lockheed Martin-led programme for the US Space Force. As the successor to the Space Based Infrared System, the overhead persistent GEO surveillance satellites are intended to provide an improved, more resilient missile warning system to counter current and emerging threats.
Northrop Grumman is scheduled to deliver the flight mission payload for Next-Gen OPIR Block 0 to Lockheed Martin in 2023.
