USA 286

USA 286 is an unidentified experimental satellite built by Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and is flown via the STP (Space Test Program).

Likely USA 286 is one of the payloads listed on the EAGLE mission - with ARMOR (AFRL-1201 Resilient Spacecraft Bus Development Experiment) being the most probable candidate.

USA 286 was launched in 2018 as a deployable payload on the EAGLE satellite on the AFSPC 11 mission on an Atlas-5(551) rocket. Soon after reaching orbit, it was deployed from EAGLE.
