VANDENBERG AFB, Calif. – The launch of a Titan-IVB carrying a national
security payload from Space Launch Complex 4-East, has been re-scheduled for
Tuesday at 2:19 p.m. This will be the first Titan IV launched from
Vandenberg this year.

The Titan IVB is a heavy-lift space launch vehicle used to carry
government payload satellites into space. It is launched from Cape Canaveral
AFS, Florida, and Vandenberg AFB, Calif. The Titan IVB is the most recent
and largest unmanned space booster used by the Air Force. It provides
assured capability for launch of space shuttle-class payloads. The vehicle
is flexible in that it can be launched with no upper stage, or one of two
optional upper stages for greater and varied carrying ability.
