USA 187



USA 187 is one of three American military (DARPA/NRL) micro-satellites that were launched by a Delta 2 rocket from Cape Canaveral at 21:34 UT. From the information available in some websites, this MiTEx (Micro-satellite Technology Experiment) program actually consists of only two of these three objects, the third being an advanced technology launcher that will send the two to the geostationary orbit from the elliptical transfer orbit. No further details are available.
