A United Launch Alliance Delta IV in the medium plus configuration will launch the U.S. military’s Wideband Global SATCOM 7 Satellite (WGS-7) from Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
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 as well as battle management and combat support information functions.
The Delta IV will be flying in the medium+ (5,4) configuration with 4 solid rocket boosters and a 5 metre payload fairing.
