Terran Orbital said it is producing 18 satellite buses for Lockheed Martin's recent Space Development Agency tranche 2 tracking layer contract.

End-to-end satellite-solution-provider Terran Orbital on Monday said that the space vehicles would be manufactured at its robotic space vehicle manufacturing facilities in California.

The T2 tracking layer would accelerate the capability to provide global, persistent indications to track missile threats, as well as to deliver preliminary missile defense capability.

The company didn't disclose financial details of the agreement.
