Delta IV WGS-9 launch delayed to no earlier than March 14

Status Report From: United Launch Alliance
Posted: Saturday, March 4, 2017

The launch date for a United Launch Alliance Delta IV carrying the WGS-9 satellite for the U.S. Air Force is no earlier than March 14.

The team is actively working to resolve a Delta IV first stage booster issue discovered during standard prelaunch inspections.

This additional time will allow the ULA team to ensure all systems are operating nominally prior to launch.

A new launch date will be released once it is established.

The Delta IV will lift off from Space Launch Complex-37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
