“From today’s successful launch of the 50th EELV to the Space X’s support to NASA with Falcon 9, it's clear the commercial space transportation industry is making notable strides”, says Scott Correll, Executive Officer of the EELV program.
Recent launch of the Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex-41 has been announced by Air Force officials. Today’s successful release of the space module from Cape Canaveral in Florida is a part of the program planned by the Defense Department.
Launched following the release of the Navy’s mobile user objective system satellite 1 aboard Atlas V along with the wideband global sat-com IV aboard a Delta IV, EELV is aimed at maintaining an easy access to space as soon as from 2030, the report finds. It is one of the most crucial parts of a whole series of missions planned by the government.
It has been found that the program has come forth after replacing an existing spectrum of launch systems with Lockheed Martin Atlas V and the Boeing Delta IV. Both of the two are families of launch vehicles, which have been developed by United Launch Alliance, the prime contractor for DOD.
The newly launched rocket features global positioning systems, system satellites with high frequency and space-based infrared systems also.
