Lockheed Martin and GeoEye continue to forge ahead on their schedule for developing an imagery satellite for the government, according to Carl Alleyne, GeoEye“™s vice president of engineering.

Lockheed announced Tuesday the company had integrated the spacecraft bus and imaging payload, delivered to Lockheed by ITT Exelis, for the GeoEye-2 imaging satellite. 

The bus is the structural foundation of the satellite and includes an integrated propulsion system as well as systems for altitude, thermal and communications control and data handling. 

System level and acceptance testing can now start under the satellite’s 2013 on-orbit operations schedule, said Allen Anderson, GeoEye-2 program director for Lockheed.

The Lockheed team has already conducted power-on testing of GeoEye-2 and is on schedule for the launch date.

Lockheed will be responsible for the satellite’s eventual launch under the original fixed-price contract with GeoEye.
