— booster. Media dimensions should not be much greater than the size of standard missiles, which are installed on the suspension of combat aircraft. Booster can be installed and civilian courts;
— the small size of the observation satellites. They should be provided with the highest resolution optics to perform the intended purpose — to transmit real-time information to the end user;
Satellites in a single launch vehicles may be several 10-s units, depending on the intended use of the system «SeeMe». Aircraft kitted system «SeeMe», rising into the sky, picking the right height — goes to the specified point. After this launcher produces satellites on board, which goes to the upper layers of the atmosphere. The carrier achieves this orbit and after services in the area, the small size of the supervisory satellite separated from him and begins to conduct surveillance in the area for 1.5 hours. The acquired data from the satellite will be transferred directly to a combat unit that requested the trigger on personal observation satellite.
Thus, system personal observation «SeeMe» will be able at any moment, at the request of the "simple soldier" to give real-time information required for that area, which will allow perfectly apply the right strategy for fighting. According to the required specification of «DARPA», «SeeMe» must have full compatibility with the operating in-orbit satellites and work on it for 2-3 months after reaching orbit to perform high priority. The delivery method razvedsputnikov may differ from the proposed «DARPA», for example can be used to deliver satellite system «Airport Launch Assist Space Access». System can deliver the cargo into space at least some purpose weighing up to 45 kilograms. Rate of development of the system is made up of all for an economical component, because the military budget of the United States has already exceeded 80 billion dollars. It is expected that by 2015, the United States will be able to deploy a network of satellite systems «SeeMe» of 25 units. The estimated price of the 1st half million bucks satellite. At the theoretical level, following a request for deployment of the satellite from the combat units, reconnaissance satellite will be able to pass the first information in less than 1.5 hours after receiving the request.
