WGS-7 launch scrubbed

Scrub-A-Dub-Dub… ULA’s Launch Of Air Force’s WGS-7 Postponed due to weather and predicted high winds. New launch time is today at 5:07pm (Pacific), and will have a 39 minute window.

Launch will be from Cape Canaveral.

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.
