ЦитироватьAug 05, 2019 17:46Launch Readiness Review completedThe launch management team has given a "go" for liftoff of the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket carrying the fifth Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF-5) communications spacecraft for the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center. Liftoff is scheduled for 5:44 a.m. EDT (0944 UTC) on Thursday from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.The Launch Readiness Review, chaired by Lou Mangieri, ULA's AEHF-5 launch director, was completed this morning at the Atlas Spaceflight Operations Center. Managers from ULA and the Air Force assessed the readiness of the rocket, payload and mission assets, discussed the status of pre-flight processing work, heard technical overviews of the countdown and flight, and previewed the weather forecast. The weather outlook, according to the 45th Weather Squadron, calls for 70 percent chance of favorable conditions for launch, with a few low- and scattered mid-level clouds, good visibility, southwesterly winds of 10 knots and a temperature near 78 degrees F. The only concern for a launch weather rule violation will be anvil clouds from thunderstorms along a weak frontal boundary over north Florida.At the conclusion of the meeting, senior leaders were polled and gave a unanimous ready status for launch. Officials then signed the Launch Readiness Certificate. AEHF-5 is a sophisticated satellite built to provide the highest levels of protection for our nation's most critical users. It features encryption, low probability of intercept and detection, jammer resistance and the ability to penetrate the electro-magnetic interference caused by nuclear weapons, all essential when communications can be the top priority.United Launch Alliance will offer live reports from the Atlas Spaceflight Operations Center in our automatically-refreshing blog during the Atlas V's rollout to the launch pad on Tuesday, plus provide comprehensive countdown coverage beginning at 10:45 p.m. EDT (0245 UTC) on Wednesday and continuing commentary all the way to the spacecraft separation nearly six hours after liftoff.

Credit: ULAThe Air Force integrated a 12U cubesat on the Centaur's aft bulkhead carrier.WASHINGTON — A United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket scheduled to launch a $1.1 billion military communications satellite on Thursday will carry an experimental cubesat as a rideshare payload on the back of the Centaur, the Atlas' upper stage.The main payload is the fifth Lockheed Martin-built Advanced Extremely High Frequency satellite, or AEHF-5. For this mission, the Air Force integrated a 12U cubesat on the Centaur's aft bulkhead carrier. The rideshare payload will be separating before the primary payload separates, said Col. Shane Clark, AEHF-5 mission director at the Air Force Space and Missile Systems' Center Launch Enterprise Systems Directorate."It's the first time SMC separates a rideshare payload prior to the anchor mission," Clark said on Monday during a conference call. The cubesat will be used to test orbital debris tracking technologies.The Atlas 5 aft bulkhead carrier was originally developed for the National Reconnaissance Office to take advantage of excess capacity on big rocket to put small payloads into orbit. A newly created Launch Enterprise Manifest Office married up the the cubesat with the Centaur for the AEHF-5 mission. Clark said this is the first multi-manifest space vehicle integration executed by the new office.The mission is on track to lift off from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Thursday. The rocket will fly in its most powerful configuration, the Atlas 5 551. The AEHF satellites in geosynchronous Earth orbit provide nuclear-survivable, protected communications for strategic command and tactical warfighters. They are used by the U.S. military and international partners Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.Clark said the Air Force wants to continue to find ways to use space vehicle capacity as efficiently as possible. "We haven't in the past separated rideshares before the anchor mission," he said. "The mission design of this one allows us to do that." The new manifest office at SMC will be responsible for integrating rideshares "when we have anchor missions that have some excess capability."Gary Wentz, ULA's vice president for government and commercial programs, said he does not anticipate any further delays to the AEHF-5 mission that was originally scheduled for June 27. The date had to be pushed back after a component failed during final acceptance tests. "The teams removed the suspect hardware from all our launch vehicles," said Wentz. "We are in the process of incorporating some minor changes to the hardware. We have retested and reinstalled the hardware on the vehicle."AEHF-5 will be ULA's 134th launch since the company was formed in 2006. It will be the ninth for the Atlas 5 in the 551 configuration with five solid rocket boosters.
Цитировать Spaceflight Now @SpaceflightNow 9 мин. назадUS Air Force officials signed off Monday on a plan for SpaceX and United Launch Alliance, rivals in the launch services market, to fire off Falcon 9 and Atlas 5 rockets from neighboring launch pads at Cape Canaveral on Tuesday evening and Thursday morning. https://spaceflightnow.com/2019/08/05/cape-canaveral-to-host-two-launches-in-36-hours-this-week/ ...8 мин. назадAccording to my survey of the wonderful global launch log maintained by @planet4589, this would be the shortest span between orbital launches at Cape Canaveral since May 1981. Weather permitting, of course.

ЦитироватьAug 06, 2019 20:08The MLP was lowered onto the launch pad piers, achieving the "harddown" milestone at 10:53 a.m. EDT (1453 UTC). The team has since transferred the environmental control system from the mobile trailers used during rollout to the ground facilities at the pad to feed conditioned air to the rocket and payload. The ECS trailers are being disengaged from the MLP to make their way back to the VIF right now.Meanwhile, the Atlas and Centaur stages have been powered up for standard system testing and operations.
