Perhaps the agency would like to keep such specifics a secret.

Aye they don't release the specs of spy satellites.

I would bet the new satellite is equipped with radar jamming or ems emitting devices to jam up intruding planes, missiles and or signals...or even a laser to take out enemy satellites... who knows.

Seeing as you generate more power riding your bicycle than a satellite can draw from its solar panels... I'm guessing there is no super laser, no death ray, no jamming devices.... just an eye in the sky.

I remember the good old days when spy equipment was actually kept secret.

M3m3m3m3m3. Basically Jamming doesnt need to be done by satellites. But radars draw alot of energy. Dont expect all its power comes from solar panels. Most likely a nuclear battery backed by solar.
