General Atomics to Host French Payload on Orbital Test Bed Satellite Under USAF Program

TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 8, 2018 — General Atomics will integrate a France-supplied sensor-based data collection payload with a 242.5-pound Orbital Test Bed satellite that it will launch for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration under a U.S. Air Force order, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.
