    Company Commanders use spy satellite

    Soon, month, US Army will make spy satellites
    available to Company Commanders in the battle field,
    Available will be work product will be finished polished Intel.
    usable NOW.

    Response time is 10 min.
    And refreshed every 3 hours.

    The broad spectrum cameras can tell
    difference between fresh dug holes 
    and old ground. Good for spotting IEDs.

    Or seeing insurgents under a tree.
    Eventually they will have a satellite network
    of a dozen with carefully placed orbits
    so a troop in the middle of Afghan
    can call up a Intelligence survey on the
    roads in its operating area, and humans
    on location geographically.
    Thereby knowing the manpower disposition
    geographically in their immediate operating 

    The program is cheap and has huge potential
     the surveillance system is brought to us by geniuses at Raytheon.  ARTEMIS (Advanced Responsive Tactically Effective Military Imaging Spectrometer).
    They put this together in 15 mos, usually it takes 3 to 4 years.

    6/10/2010 - KIRTLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M -- Tactical Satellite-3 will transition from an experimental demonstration to an operational asset when spacecraft control authority officially transfers on June 12 from the Air Force Research Laboratory's Space Vehicles Directorate here to Air Force Space Command at Peterson AFB, Colo.
    Some of the highlights of TacSat-3's almost 13-month experimental flight included approximately 2,100 image collects performed by the ARTEMIS sensor, inaugural evaluation and employment in space of plug-and-play technology with the AFRL-led Space Avionics Experiment, downloading information obtained from ocean-based buoys to a ground station with the Office of Naval Research-sponsored Satellite Communications Package, and U.S. Army demonstration of tactical concept of operations with a space intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance system.

    "The intent of the program is to help demonstrate the feasibility of the 'responsive-space' concept," Arnold said. "Small, relatively inexpensive satellites would be launched on demand to meet real-time battlefield needs."

    The heart of the system is a Spectrometer which sees many times what
    the human eye can see. And it processes the data into a functioning piece
    of Intelligence for use by combat troops on demand.
    Field commanders, using, e.g., a AN/PRC-117F manpack military radio can directly communicate with the satellite in the ultrahigh frequency band.

    It will be very hard to ambush American troops, and the same
    technology can be used to find Minerals in Paki.

    Paki Minerals key to Afghan security.


    AND they got this...
    Northrop Grumman is trying to convey in this illustration accompanying the company’s announcement of a $517 million, five-year contract to build three combat airships for the military. It takes Grumman 5 yrs, not 15 months?


    X-37B Secret missions

     Gonna kick some al Qaeda cult and Taliban ASS.
