Orbital ATK Technologies Support Today's ULA Delta IV Launch

"The ULA #DeltaIV #NROL47" launch for the @NatReconOfc was scrubbed today due to an issue with a ground system valve.

ULA's webcast launch commentator did not mention the satellite beyond its name and as usual for classified missions, the company ended its coverage after payload fairing jettison.

Last month, a SpaceX rocket launch from Vandenburg during the sunset created a shimmering streak across the sky.

"Orbital ATK is proud to support the NRO and ULA with key technologies that enable the launch of critical national defense satellites", said Charlie Precourt, Vice President and General Manager of Orbital ATK's Propulsion Systems Division.

After staging, an Aerojet Rocketdyne RL10B-2 granted some 24,750 pounds of thrust, sending the Delta IV's upper stage to orbit. "Aerojet Rocketdyne employees across the country work hard to ensure 100 percent mission success, and our role in yet another launch for the National Reconnaissance Office demonstrates the trust and confidence in our propulsion".

That Falcon 9 rocket launch delivered 10 satellites into low-Earth orbit for Iridium, a communications company.
