CELTEE (The CubeSat Enhanced Locator Transponder Evaluation Experiment) is a 1U CubeSat mission of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to test the performance of an Enhanced Location Transponder in support of Space Situational Awareness. With an increase in the number of CubeSats, many of which will soon employ maneuvering capability, the Air Force identified the need for an accurate means of tracking their orbits in support of Space Situational Awareness and a reduction in conjunctions with other resident space objects which could be realized by outfitting satellites with small locator transponders for orbital tracking and easy identification.
