The SENTINEL Infrared Telescope is a telescope. The SENTINEL Infrared Telescope was taken from the official SQUAD mod Asteroid Day.

In order for it to be used, it must be in a solar orbit (orbiting around the Sun). When activated, it will scan for and display asteroids that is in its closet planetary area. Eg: If it is closest to the Kerbin orbit, it will display the asteroids around Kerbin orbit.

Product description

The Sentinel Space Telescope uses infrared light to detect celestial bodies, such as asteroids, that may pose a risk to Kerbin.

  • Initial Release


  • The text "B-612" can be seen on the side of the telescope. This is a reference to the B-612 Foundation, a non profit foundation dedicated to discovering Near Earth Asteroids and defending Earth from them.
  • SENTINEL in the name of the part is also a reference to the real life SENTINEL Space Telescope, which the B-612 Foundation wants to be put in Solar orbit near Venus to find asteroids that might threaten the Earth.
