TRW → Northrop Grumman Space Technology: T310

T310 (GeoLITE) [NRO]

The T310 is an advanced, high-performance, three-axis stabilized satellite that is modular and expandable to support a wide range of mission-specific instruments. The T310 core spacecraft is a build-to-print reproduction of the TRW-built GeoLITE spacecraft, which was launched in May 2001. The T310 was specifically designed to satisfy missions requiring an extremely stable, low-jitter platform with precision pointing capability. The T310 is capable of flying in any geosychronous orbit and is easily adaptable to low-earth orbit applications.
