Now, NROL-34 is set to go from Vandenberg on 12 April.
Will this op also meet schedule or will bad luck, weather, and anomalies (AKA the dreaded glitches) push it to the right?
What the NRO has done is as impressive a series of launch campaigns as we’ve had since GPS was populated in the 1990s. Then, GPS had the advantage of one launch vehicle, one launch site, and a highly standardized payload.
Again, hats off to the NRO and their contractors!
