VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. — Team Vandenberg launched a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Medium+ (5,2) from Space Launch Complex-6 here at 4:12 p.m. PDT today.

“The teamwork between the 30th Space Wing, the National Reconnaissance Office, United Launch Alliance and numerous other agencies was seamless,” said Col. Nina Armagno, 30th Space Wing commander and launch decision authority. “It’s this synergistic mindset and attention to detail that led to our amazing launch today.”
