Tetra 1 [Milennium Space Systems]
Tetra 1 is a military microsatellite created for various prototype missions in and around geosynchronous earth orbit. TETRA-1 was the first prototype award under the U.S. Space Forceís Space and Missile Systems Centerís Space Enterprise Consortium Other Transaction Authority (OTA) charter.
The satellites will support experimentation and Tactics, Techniques and Procedure (TTP) development at Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO). TETRA-1 is based on Millennium Space Systems' Altair-class small satellite product line.
The satellite will be launched together with another payloads in late 2020 on the USSF-44 (formerly known as AFSPC-44) mission on a SpaceX Falcon-Heavy (Block 5) rocket.
Three more Tetra satellites are planned.
