Цитата ULA @ulalaunchWelcome to Cape Canaveral and the start of another #AtlasV launch campaign! Follow along today as we begin stacking the rocket to launch two Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program (GSSAP) satellites for @SpaceForceDOD and @USSF_SSC on Jan. 21. http://bit.ly/av_ussf8
Цитата: undefined ULA @ulalaunchThe #AtlasV 511 with a single solid rocket booster will be used to launch the #USSF8 mission directly to geosynchronous orbit. This is the first 511, which also features a five-meter payload fairing and an RL10C-1 engine on the Centaur upper stage. https://ulalaunch.com/missions/next-launch/atlas-v-ussf-8...
Цитата ULA @ulalaunchUpcoming in #AtlasV stacking, a GEM 63 solid rocket booster and the Centaur will be hoisted into place. #USSF8 payload attachment occurs early in the new year. Liftoff on Jan. 21 will be the 75th #AtlasV launch from Cape Canaveral and ULA's 148th mission. https://ulalaunch.com/missions/next-launch/atlas-v-ussf-8...
Цитата ULA @ulalaunchAnother launch year is underway at ULA with attachment of the #USSF8 national security payload atop an #AtlasV 511 rocket. The encapsulated @SpaceForce_DOD satellites arrived at the Vertical Integration Facility on Monday.See more details in our blog: https://blog.ulalaunch.com/blog/ussf-8-ula-prepares-to-launch-third-gssap-mission...
ЦитатаUSSF-8: ULA prepares to launch third GSSAP missionJanuary 11, 2022The USSF-8 payload arrives at the VIF to join its Atlas V rocket. Photo by United Launch AllianceAnother launch year is underway at United Launch Alliance (ULA) with attachment of a U.S. Space Force payload atop an Atlas V 511 rocket for the USSF-8 mission later this month.The two Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program (GSSAP) spacecraft, encapsulated in the rocket's 17.7-foot (5.4-meter) payload fairing, arrived at ULA's Vertical Integration Facility (VIF) and was hoisted aboard the Atlas V on Monday, Jan. 10.Technicians connected the payload and launch vehicle to begin combined operations. Final testing and electrical checkouts will be performed before the 196-foot-tall (59.7-meter) rocket is transported to Space Launch Complex-41 for its countdown and liftoff.Launch of the U.S. national security mission for the Space Force's Space Systems Command is targeted for Jan. 21. It will be the 75th Atlas V to launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla.This is the GSSAP program's third launch, having successfully used ULA Delta IV Medium+ (4,2) rockets in July 2014 and August 2016 to deploy the first two pairs of space surveillance satellites into space.The GSSAP spacecraft, built by Northrop Grumman, greatly improve our ability to rapidly detect, warn, characterize, and attribute disturbances to space systems in the geosynchronous environment, and enable spaceflight safety to assist in avoiding satellite collisions.From their vantage point, the GSSAP satellites have clear and unobstructed viewing of objects in space without the interruption from weather or the atmospheric distortion that can limit ground-based observations. This allows for more accurate tracking and characterization of human-made orbiting objects.GSSAP supports U.S. Strategic Command space surveillance operations as a dedicated Space Surveillance Network sensor. The GSSAP spacecraft also have the capability to perform Rendezvous and Proximity Operations (RPO). RPO allows for the space vehicle to maneuver near a resident space object of interest, enabling characterization for anomaly resolution and enhanced surveillance, while maintaining flight safety.Launch of the USSF-8 mission marks the 148th flight for ULA and our 93rd in service to national security. This mission also furthers the long-standing relationship between ULA and the Space Systems Command (SSC), headquartered in Los Angeles, Calif. SSC is responsible for launch operations, on-orbit checkout, developmental testing, sustainment and maintenance of military satellite constellations and other Department of Defense space systems.

ЦитатаULA @ulalaunchLaunch of the #AtlasV 511 rocket on the #USSF8 mission to deploy two Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program (GSSAP) spacecraft for the nation is scheduled for Friday at 2:00pmEST (1900 UTC). Weather is 60% GO. Live status blog and webcast: http://bit.ly/av_ussf8
ЦитатаJan 19 22:17 Weather 60% GO for Friday's Launch The forecast from Launch Weather Officer Will Ulrich of the Space Force's 45th Weather Squadron indicates a 60 percent chance of acceptable conditions for Friday's 2:00 p.m. EST (1900 UTC) launch of Atlas V on the USSF-8 mission.A stretch of cool, dry, and pleasant weather is expected through Thursday as high pressure shifts from the Gulf of Mexico into the western Atlantic. The next cold front is slated to approach the area Friday, although most weather models say the system will remain north of the Cape for the launch opportunity.The operations forecast includes scattered low clouds and a broken deck of mid- to high-level clouds, good visibility, southeasterly winds 5-9 knots and a temperature near 73 degrees F.The primary areas of concern will be violations to the Cumulus Cloud and Thick Cloud Layer Rules.

Цитата ULA @ulalaunchThis #AtlasV 511 rocket, designated AV-084, stands 196 feet (59.7 meters) tall and will weigh 858,115 pounds (389,234 kg) once fully fueled for liftoff. It features a single side-mounted solid rocket booster for additional liftoff thrust. http://bit.ly/av_ussf8
Цитата ULA @ulalaunchThe weather forecast for Friday's #AtlasV launch has improved to a 70 percent chance of acceptable conditions. Cloud cover will be monitored by @SpaceForceDOD meteorologists as we approach the 2pmEST (1900 UTC) opening of the launch window tomorrow. http://bit.ly/av_ussf8
