1/ Our mission patch for #NROL71 depicts an eagle as a fitting mascot to represent NRO's support to our nation's warfighter. The initials "JLC" on the foreground dog-tag are in honor of Col. Joshua L. Chamberlain.

NROL-71 is scheduled for launch from VAFB on 2018 Dec 08 at 04:19 UTC, aboard a Delta IV-Heavy.

I believe that the payload is the first of the 5th generation of large electro-optical satellite of KH-11 heritage.

The NGA has issued the Broadcast Warning, which reveals an unprecedented orbit for the series. 

The launch azimuth is about 163 deg, which evaluates to about a 74 deg inclination orbit. All previous launches have been sun-synchronous. There was a stealthy variant called Misty, which resulted in two launches to quasi-65 deg orbits in 1990 and 1999.

... 

I intend to post search elements later.

Dec. 5 -- Delta IV Heavy launch scheduled for Friday

Final preparations are underway for Friday night's flight of the United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket on the NROL-71 national security mission from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The triple-core, hydrogen-fueled booster is scheduled for liftoff at 8:19 p.m. PST (11:19 p.m. EST; 0419 UTC on Saturday) from historic Space Launch Complex 6 for the National Reconnaissance Office.
 Скрытый текст:
The NRO is a joint Department of Defense-Intelligence Community organization responsible for developing, launching and operating America's intelligence satellites to meet the national security needs of the United States.

Download the NRO brochure from the agency's website for more information.

ULA and the NRO have enjoyed a lasting partnership, conducting 27 successful launches together over the past dozen years. Our very first launch after the company was formed was an NRO mission in December 2006.

This will be 132nd mission for United Launch Alliance and our second Heavy in less than four months. It is the 382nd Delta launch since 1960, the 38th for a Delta IV rocket since 2002 and the 11th Delta IV Heavy.

The Delta IV Heavy was built in Alabama and its engines come from California and Florida. It is made of three common booster cores, an upper stage, eight fuel tanks, four engines and a 63-foot-long composite payload fairing. The vehicle stands 233 feet tall and 53 feet wide, will weigh 1.6 million pounds fully fueled and launches atop 2.1 million pounds of thrust. At liftoff, Delta IV Heavy's RS-68A main engines will gulp 6,000 pounds of fuel per second.
The launch weather forecast calls for a few high cirrus clouds, good visibility, northerly winds of 12 to 18 knots, gusting to 23 knots and a temperature in the low 50s F. There is a 40 percent chance of favorable liftoff weather conditions, with grounds winds the primary concern.

ЦитатаDec. 6 -- LRR completed

Liftoff of the United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket on the NROL-71 mission for the National Reconnaissance Office from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California remains on schedule for Friday night at 8:19 p.m. PST (11:19 p.m. EST; 0419 UTC).

The Launch Readiness Review, moderated by Lou Mangieri, ULA's NROL-71 launch director, was completed this morning. Managers assessed all aspects of mission readiness, discussed the status of pre-flight processing work, heard technical overviews of the countdown and flight, and previewed the weather forecast.

At the conclusion of the meeting, senior leaders were polled and gave a unanimous "go" for launch. Officials then signed the Launch Readiness Certificate.

Crews at Space Launch Complex 6 today will retract the 27-story Mobile Assembly Shelter away from the rocket. This 9-million-pound structure, which moves along rails, was built in the 1980s when the pad was being prepared for space shuttle launches. It was designed to shield the shuttle from the weather during on-pad assembly of the vehicle's solid rocket boosters, external tank and mating of the orbiter. Now, it gives calm working conditions during processing of the Delta IV.

On launch day, the pad's other mobile structure will be rolled back. The 32-story, 13-million-pound Mobile Service Tower supports the work platforms that lower around the Delta IV Heavy and provide technicians complete access to the rocket, and supports vertical integration of the payload atop the launch vehicle.

United Launch Alliance will provide complete live coverage of the Friday's countdown in this blog starting at 11:45 a.m. PST (2:45 p.m. EST; 1945 UTC). Our Live Launch Updates Blog brings you official and timely information during the Delta IV Heavy rocket's countdown with automatically-refreshing updates.

At the request of our customer, live mission coverage will conclude after confirmation of payload fairing jettison, which is scheduled to occur about six minutes after liftoff.

The official launch weather forecast, according to the 30th Weather Squadron, continues to call for a 40 percent chance of favorable conditions for the liftoff, with a few high-level clouds, northerly winds at 12 to 18 knots, gusting to 23 knots and a temperature in the low to mid 50 degrees F. The only concern for a launch weather rule violation will be winds.

ЦитатаРакета-носитель Delta IV выведет на орбиту очередной американский разведывательный спутник
07.12.2018 16:30:49

Вашингтон. 7 декабря. ИНТЕРФАКС-АВН - Ракета-носитель Delta IV в субботу, как ожидается, выведет на орбиту очередной спутник в интересах Национального управления военно-космической разведки США, сообщает компания United Launch Alliance.

Старт ракеты будет осуществлен компанией с авиабазы ВВС США Ванденберг в Калифорнии.

United Launch Alliance является совместным предприятием корпораций "Боинг" и "Локхид Мартин", которое осуществляет запуски в интересах американского разведывательного сообщества.

Сведения о секретном спутнике официально не раскрываются. Однако, по имеющимся данным, на эллиптическую полярную орбиту будет выведен очередной разведывательный спутник KH-11 Key Hole ("Замочная скважина") с оптико-электронной аппаратурой. Основная задача спутника заключается в передаче разведывательному сообществу США в реальном режиме времени изображений с ультравысоким разрешением.
 Скрытый текст:
Теоретическая разрешающая способность аппаратуры спутника KH-11 составляет приблизительно 15 см. Его главное зеркало имеет диаметр 2,4 метра - такое же, как на американском космическом телескопе "Хаббл", который в свое время был создан компанией "Локхид Мартин" на основе разведывательного спутника KH-11. По размерам он также напоминает "Хаббл" и имеет длину 19,5 метра, диаметр - около 3 метров.

На данный момент в составе американской орбитальной группировки уже имеются четыре спутника типа KH-11.
