TACSAT 2


TACSAT 2 is no longer on orbit
TACSAT 2 is classified as:


NORAD ID: 29653
Int'l Code: 2006-058A
Launch date: December 16, 2006
Source: United States (US)
Launch site: WALLOPS ISLAND (WLPIS)
Decay date: 2011-02-05

TacSat-2 features 11 onboard experiments, which will be conducted during the spacecraft’s planned six to 12-month mission. The U.S. Navy’s Target Indicator Experiment (TIE) consists of a wideband sensor to gather radar, radio, and handheld communication signals. The TIE will also check for the automated identification transmission now mandated for large ocean-going ships. TacSat-2 can directly talk to any common data link compatible ground station across the globe. Other features include the integrated global positioning system occultation receiver, which will compile high-precision location data for the micro satellite, recycled solar array panels producing 500 watts of power, and autonomous operations allowing TacSat-2 to think for itself.
