MUOS exceeds its footprint requirements — by a lot

reaching practically to the North Pole. Sunday’s are slow news days, and since I worked for almost 10 years on the MUOS project as its lead orbital tester, I’ll throw this link out for your viewing pleasure. The requirement is 24 hour connectivity up to 65 degrees N.

While I’m sure the North Pole coverage they realized was not round-the-clock coverage, I can assure you that no one within the program office ever dreamed that there would be any connectivity at the North Pole.

Bravo Zulu, Lockheed!
