Paper Abstract

The Miniature Sensor Technology Integration (MSTI) program sponsored by the Strategic Defence Initiative Office (SDIO) and executed by the Phillips Laboratory -- Edwards AFB is a satellite program specifically designed to demonstrate new SDIO sensor technologies. The MSTI spacecraft series performs experiments to characterize a wide variety of SDIO advanced sensor technologies in the low earth orbit (LEO) space environment. The technologies demonstrated on MSTI provide critical information for theater missile target and clutter background characterization. The launch of MSTI-1 on 21 November 1992 set a new standard in the development of small spacecraft and in the response time required to demonstrate space technologies.
