Place satellite into specified orbit around Kerbin
Another thermal satellite for cash...
Previously, the launch software for each satellite was custom-designed for its specific orbit. Beginning with the launch of ROKSAT I, this has been simplified such that only the orbital parameters need to be changed for each launch.
Transmit thermal data from space high above Kerbin
Transmit thermal data from space around Mun
Achieve orbit around Mun
This series of Forager launches was meant to test new guidance software, allowing a craft to calculate and perform orbital manouvres autonomously. This test mission will launch, circularize, complete one orbit, then perform a deorbit burn.
This test serves as both preparation for our upcoming crewed program, and for enhanced satellite deployment capability.
