BREVARD COUNTY • BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – After a scrub yesterday due to unfavorable weather conditions, a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Medium+ (5,4) configuration launched the seventh Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS-7) mission for the U.S. Air Force on Thursday at 8:07 p.m.

WGS satellites are important elements of a new high-capacity satellite communications system providing enhanced communications capabilities to America’s troops in the field for the next decade and beyond.

WGS enables more robust and flexible execution of Command and Control, Communications Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), as well as battle management and combat support information functions.

The WGS constellation augments the existing service available through the UHF Follow-on satellite by providing enhanced information broadcast capabilities.

ULA’s next launch is the Atlas V MUOS-4 mission for the United States Navy, scheduled for August 31 from Space Launch Complex-41 from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
