Launch of Navy Communications Satellite Delayed
Yesterday’s Atlas III launch of the U.S. Navy‘s UFO F11 communications satellite from Cape Canaveral, Fla., was scrubbed because of a temperature measurement that fell below the requirement on ground support equipment, International Launch Services announced. A new date has not been set.
The equipment interfaces with the booster’s liquid oxygen tank. Inspection of the equipment is required to determine the new launch date.
