This operation’s major payload is the US Air Force’s 5th Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF-5) satellite., which was designed by Lockheed Martin, AEHF group will eventually contain six satellites that will deliver global and secure communication network for strategic command and warfighters on the ground, at sea, and in the air, this description is presented by Lockheed Martin in a description of the mission.
Every AEHF satellites will offer coverage from a geostationary orbit, it means that all those six satellites continuously hover over the equivalent position in the air by following the rotation of the planet. They will change the military’s aging Milstar constellation. The second most important thing is a small Cubesat — will hitch a ride to orbit with AEHF-5. The Cubesat, is owned by the US military, which will separate from the rocket’s upper part before AEHF-5 and will test new orbital debris-tracking technologies, depending upon the space news.
