SES 2 is one of three virtually identical satellites built by Orbital for SES and launched in 2010 and 2011. The satellite target position is at 87 degrees west longitude, where its 48 C-band and Ku-band transponders will reach customers across North America. The U.S. Air Force's Commercially Hosted Infrared Payload, or CHIRP, is a piggyback instrument aboard SES 2. It will demonstrate infrared detection technologies from geosynchronous orbit for missile warning applications. The Air Force plans to activate the CHIRP experiment about 30 days after launch, then begin an experimentation phase. It features a wide field-of-view staring sensor to pick up infrared signatures of missile plumes, explosions and fires.
