A Delta IV rocket is set to blast off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station today after a one-day delay to resolve a technical problem. The United Launch Alliance rocket is scheduled to launch this evening at 8:27 p.m. EDT. A 30-minute window will extend through 8:57 p.m. The Delta IV will launch a U.S. military communications satellite into orbit. The Boeing-built Wideband Global SATCOM spacecraft is the fifth in a series of new-generation satellites that provide U.S. and allied military forces with high-capacity broadband communications capability.
