The "basic" as an alternative to the "photographic engineering future - FIA", ambition and high cost, with raises many American officials, legislators and experts questioned the high cost of satellite programs.

The Pentagon has cancelled KEY FIA has spent "National Bureau of the poll" in the program six years, during which billions of dollars spent, in September 2005 after confronting "Boeing" - the initial contractor - many of the technical obstacles to the development of electric SATELLITE - visual electro - optiocal.
