ULA launches rocket carrying Space Force satellite from Cape Canaveral



28 verified launch, verified 25 status check. Go Alice, go center for us. Well t minus 10 nine 8765 four 321. We have engine ignition and lift off of the United launch alliance atlas five rocket carrying USSF 12 for the United States Space force pitch over program. Body range look good and has gone to close loop system response looks good 20 seconds into flight this is now completing the pitch over maneuver. Body rates continue to look good. The one throttled down slightly to partial thrust response looks good. 36 seconds into flight. Palace five is now passing Mach one RD 1 80 continues to look good in partial thrust mode. Good chamber pressures on all SRB S At 49 seconds in *** flight Max Q maximum dynamic pressure RD 1 80 engine operating parameters continue to look good Srb chamber pressures also look good now passing one minute into flight Mhm RS 1 80 now throttling back up to full thrust as expected. That is chamber pressure’s on the srb continue to look good party. 1 80 engine operating parameters also look good now one minute 23 seconds into flight approximately three minutes now remaining in the boost phase of flight and at this point in the flight Atlas five now weighs just one half of its lift off weight and c srb chamber pressure is tailing off now and we have sRB burnout. Yeah I just one minute 45 seconds into flight engine operating parameters continue to look good And we have jettison of all four solid rocket boosters, vehicles gone to closed loop steering, body rate responses look good, Just past two minutes into flight now already 1 80 throttling down slightly as expected. Engine operating parameters continue to look good and two minutes now remaining in the boost phase of flight. Atlas favors now 50 miles in altitude, 78 miles. Downrange distance traveling at 5000 mph, two minutes 40 seconds in Already 1 80 engine operating parameters continue to look good vehicle body rates looking good throughout, boosted and the center reaction control system is now pressurizing to flight level system response looks good, Coming up on three minutes into flight Party won 80 now throttling to maintain *** constant 2.5 G acceleration limits, seeing good response on the RD 1 80 body rates continue to look good throughout boost phase, Now passing three minutes 20 seconds into flight, approximately one minute now remaining until biko and we have good indication of payload fairing, jettison and CFl our deck jettison vehicles now throttled back up slightly. Engine response continues to look good And are now throttling to maintain *** constant 4.60 acceleration limited preparation for Biko and we have boost face chill down, Previousing four minutes into flight vehicle systems all continue to operate normally throughout the station. Body rates continue to look good engine operating parameters continue to look good as it maintains that acceleration limit

ULA launches rocket carrying Space Force satellite from Cape Canaveral

The United Launch Alliance plans to send a US Space Force satellite into space Friday night from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. The launch scrubbed due to inclement weather Thursday night, so Friday marks rocket maker ULA’s second attempt at the launch.

The United Launch Alliance plans to send a US Space Force satellite into space Friday night from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

The launch was scheduled for 6 pm and delayed to 7:15 pm

The satellite will better detect and track missile threats around the world.
