SBIRS GEO-1 (USA 230) is the Space Based Infrared System Geosynchronous-1 missile warning satellite. Valued at more than US$1.2 billion, this satellite begins the next era for warning spacecraft that continuously monitor the globe to alert the national leadership and battlefield commanders of missile launches. It evolves the orbiting system from the Cold War focus on intercontinental ballistic missiles to today's short-range missile threats by incorporating new technologies to make quicker detections of fainter objects.
