The CAMEO Program will integrate advanced optical and sensor technologies with the DARPA Advanced Technology Standard Satcl I I Ic lius (AISS 13) to (lelnonsirate and sIcc—qual i fy a new, I ight weight iuili ispeciral icniotc sensing small saicli itc. l'hc program offers an important iwo—fold opl)ortuIlity ( 1) to dcnonstratc technology that simultaneously addresses critical DoD and civil needs; and (2) to advance the concept of using small satellites for rapid, affordable capability insertion beyond DoD, into the civil/national space arena. The goals of the program are to: . Demonstrate "dual use", multi—purpose advanced ienioie sensing technologies for: (I ) l)ol) — Wide Area Surveillance; (2) Civil -Global Climate Research; and (3) Civil - Environmental Monitoring; S I)emonstrate the use of small satellites to rapidly augmilent on-orbit capability and affordably nrndernize both DoD and civil remote sensing satellite constellations; and . Deiiionstrate new payload operations concepts and the direct downlinking of usable data to DoD and civil consumers.
