United Launch Alliance NROL-52 Mission
United Launch Alliance was set to launch the NROL-52 mission on September 28th, however due to Hurricane Irma hitting the Florida panhandle the launch has been postponed. Hurricane Irma hit the Florida Spaceport on the evening of September 10 and continued to the next day. Luckily both the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station sustained minimal damage. Both will continue operations after a damage assessment.
A United Launch Alliance, Atlas V rocketed, designated AV-075, will launch the satellite payload for the United States National Reconnaissance Office. The Atlas V rocket will lift off from launch complex 41 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The launch window is from 4:00 am – 5:30 am EST on October 5th 2017.
