Spy Satellite To Launch From California's Vandenberg AFB
14 January, 2018, 00:30
The mission will see the aerospace company launch a spy satellite into orbit using its Delta IV rocket.
The United Launch Alliance scheduled to launch a rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. It had been scheduled to launch Thursday, but a problem with the ground system valve forced a one-day delay, with a window for the launching opening at 1 p.m. Friday. The National Reconnaissance Office is a U.S. Government agency which has been given the charge to design, build and launch and maintain America's fleet of spy satellites. This week's launch will be ULA's 27th mission for the NRO.
The original launch date was Wednesday, but was pushed back until Thursday due to weather.
The Delta IV family of launch vehicles combines design simplicity, manufacturing efficiency, and streamlined mission and vehicle integration to meet customer requirements to launch high-priority U.S. Air Force (USAF), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), NASA, and commercial payloads to orbit.
Founded in 2006, ULA is a joint venture of Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
