General Atomics business unit has received a delivery order from the U.S. Air Force to integrate a satellite payload into an orbital test bed in support of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration mission.

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems will launch a 242.5-pound OTB satellite for the Argos Advanced Data Collection System designed to collect global data for environmental and other applications, the company said Thursday.

France’s space agency will provide the A-DCS payload for the mission.

Gathered data support a variety of areas including wildlife monitoring, ocean buoy tracking and maritime security.

The Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center awarded the delivery order under the military service’s Hosted Payload Solutions program.

OTB satellite is designed to accommodate one mission payload or support simultaneous launch of multiple payloads with a single platform.
