In July 2015, Orbital ATK was awarded a US$23.6 million contract by the US Air Force to launch ORS-5 mission in 2017 on a Minotaur 4. The Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) spacecraft has been built by the MIT Lincoln Laboratory as an operational demonstration of the Sensorsat satellite’s scanning technology. Sensorsat is designed to scan the geostationary satellite belt from its position in low Earth orbit (LEO). The mission is only designed to last six months.
