    The Deep Space Program Science Experiment (DSPSE), better known as “Clementine,” was developed and built by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. Launched January 25, 1994, from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, Clementine’s primary mission was in-space testing of advanced technologies for high-tech, lightweight missile defense. The relatively inexpensive, rapidly built spacecraft constituted a major revolution in spacecraft management and design and also contributed significantly to lunar studies.
