Description: The Next Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared (Next Gen OPIR) is a US Air Force program aimed at delivering a new constellation of IR surveillance satellites in the 2020s. The new satellites are expected to monitor ballistic missile launches from the territory of China and Russia among others providing thus early warning against any ballistic missile launch. The Next Gen OPIR constellation will consist of three Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) space vehicles and two Polar Earth Orbit (PEO) space vehicles. The first satellite launch is scheduled in 2023 with the system becoming fully operational with five spacecrafts placed into orbit by 2029.

The Next Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared Geosynchronous Earth Orbit Space Vehicles (Next Gen OPIR GEOSV) is a US Air Force program aimed at delivering three IR surveillance satellites in the 2020s. Lockheed Martin was awarded a $3 billion contract for the development of the Next Gen OPIR GEOSV program in August 2018 to be completed by April 2021. These spacecraft will be launched starting in 2023 through 2029.
