^^ Craft Information - Orbital Update - Return to Operations ^^

Originally launched into LKO to test some new RCS thruster computer control code, the craft has since been made an operational part of the LKO omni network. Thanks to wargames off the coast of KSC, the craft was forced to launch into a higher-inclination orbit that originally planned. After the RCS code was tested and proven, there was enough fuel left to push the craft into a 45 degree orbit that would serve to split the gap between the LKO ComSats in equatorial orbit and the KWO-2 in polar orbit.

Orbital data has been updated to account for a 4-month operational gap as the KSA was shutdown due to government audit
