ULA Launches Delta IV Rocket Carrying Military Satellite From Cape Canaveral
A United Launch Alliance Delta IV launched from Space Launch Complex-37. On board was one of the Air Force’s high-capacity satellite communication system – called Wideband Global SATCOM.
“Kudos to the Air Force and all of our mission partners on today’s successful launch and orbital delivery of the WGS-7 satellite,” said Jim Sponnick, ULA vice president.
The Boeing-built satellite will support military operations through both war and peace times with high speed data and video.
It’s the second launch in eight days for the public-private launch venture ULA. They’re planning on another satellite launch August 31.
