Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX) Measurement Capability - The precision MSX Observatory will collect data over a wide wavelength range during its long-duration mission. Top: During the primary data gathering (cryogen) phase, MSX experiments will provide critical first-time observations of missile target signatures against Earth-limb, auroral, and celestial cluttered backgrounds, as well as long-term data on backgrounds. Bottom: Capabilities of MSX in the secondary data gathering (post cryogen) phase will focus on celestial and terrestrial backgrounds, surveillance demonstrations, and contamination and environmental research.
