Lockheed Martin launches new tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance satellite platform

The “commanding heights” of this set of operations are not limited to surveillance of increasingly complex scenes, but also to integrate the sea and land alone into a more complex network, and Use artificial intelligence technology to coordinate the overall operation.

To achieve this, Lockheed Martin decided to make a refrigerator-sized orbiting satellite (LM 400 medium-sized satellite) the backbone of the entire system. By adopting an open architecture design, it is very suitable for mass production to reduce overall deployment costs.

With the help of a huge satellite cluster, combat troops can gather different assets to complete reconnaissance and control the enemy faster.

New Atlas points out that the tactical ISR satellite uses Open Mission System (OMS) and Universal Command and Control Interface (UCI) to enable it to operate with different platforms and battle management systems.

Rick Ambrose, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Aerospace, said that the leading technical capabilities of satellite clusters can meet the needs of customers for future missions. LM 400 is a highly adaptable medium-sized satellite that can be mass-produced quickly, economically, and efficiently.

In addition, as a software-defined platform, it can quickly adapt to changing threats and provide up to 14 kW for payloads weighing 3,300 pounds (1500 kg).
