USASMDC/ARSTRAT is developing a very small, low cost, visible imagery satellite technology demonstrator that can be tasked by the tactical-level ground component warfighter in theater to downlink real time imagery.
The Technology Center is developing Kestrel Eye as an electro-optical nanosatelliteclass imagery satellite that will be tasked by the tactical ground component warfighter.
Capable of producing 1.5 meter resolution imagery, Kestrel Eye's data will be downlinked directly back to the same warfighter via a data relay network that is also accessible by other warfighters in theater without
any continental United States (CONUS) relay or data filtering. The intent is to demonstrate a tactical space-based imagery nanosat that could be proliferated in large numbers to provide a persistent capability to ground forces. The primary objective of the demonstration
will be to task the satellite to take a picture of a designated ground object of interest and have that image relayed back to the ground warfighter during the same satellite pass (i.e., within an approximately ten minute tasking-to-product cycle).
