    There's some information on the MTI payload (and others, such as 
    ARGOS and FORTE) on this site:
    In the top-right frame select the "STP Missions" link; then in the 
    new bar on the left select the 1997 newsletter.  The first page has 
    an illustration of FORTE; click on to the page with TSX Mission 5 
    at the top; MTI is below that.  It's to go into a 575 km, sun-
    synchronous orbit.
    More interesting information on (including graphics of) ARGOS, DMSP, 
    DSCS, DSP, Milstar (nice illustration!) and SBIRS (a planned 
    combination GEO, HEO, and LEO constellation of which DSP is a part) 
    is found in the fact sheets listed on this site:

    Select the "Facts, People and More" button and then "SMC Fact Sheets".
