Overview

Destination: Low Earth Orbit
Mission: Government/Top Secret

Low Earth Orbit Space Launch Complex 5 Vandenberg SFB, CA, USA

MSTI 2 (Miniature Sensor Technology Integration 2) was a US Department of Defense spacecraft launched from the Vandenberg AFB by a Scout-G1 rocket. It was the last of the now discontinued Scout series. The primary mission of MSTI 2 was to demonstrate theater ballistic missile (TBM) tracking and was intended to last for six months. It successfully spotted and locked onto a test Minuteman-3 launched from Vandenberg AFB. More than three million short wavelength infrared (SWIR) and medium wavelength infrared (MWIR) image frames were obtained during the mission.

Vought was the name of several related American aerospace firms. These have included, in the past, Lewis and Vought Corporation, Chance Vought, Vought-Sikorsky, LTV Aerospace (part of Ling-Temco-Vought), Vought Aircraft Companies, and Vought Aircraft Industries. The first incarnation of Vought was established by Chance M. Vought and Birdseye Lewis in 1917. In 1928, it was acquired by United Aircraft and Transport Corporation, which a few years later became United Aircraft Corporation; this was the first of many reorganizations and buyouts. During the 1920s and 1930s, Vought Aircraft and Chance Vought specialized in carrier-based aircraft for the United States Navy, by far its biggest customer. Chance Vought produced thousands of planes during World War II, including the F4U Corsair. Vought became independent again in 1954, and was purchased by Ling-Temco-Vought in 1961. The company designed and produced a variety of planes and missiles throughout the Cold War. Vought was sold from LTV and owned in various degrees by the Carlyle Group and Northrop Grumman in the early 1990s. It was then fully bought by Carlyle, renamed Vought Aircraft Industries, with headquarters in Dallas, Texas. In June 2010, the Carlyle Group sold Vought to the Triumph Group.
