Raytheon Co. has delivered a hyper-spectral imaging sensor developed to demonstrate and assess military applications from satellites launched on demand, the company announced June 11.

The ARTEMIS (Advanced Responsive Tactically Effective Military Imaging Spectrometer) unit was developed for the U.S. Department of Defense’s Tactical Satellite (TacSat) program and will be kept at Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M., awaiting its planned December launch aboard TacSat-3.

Employing commercial off-the-shelf components and industry standard interfaces, ARTEMIS serves as a prototype for systems to support rapid launch requirements.
