Orbital ATK will launch a Minotaur 4 rocket from a little used launch pad at Cape Canaveral. The payload will be the ORS 5 US Air Force satellite.

The ORS-5 satellite (Operationally Responsive Space) will be launched during a 4 hour window. ORS-5 will deliver space situational awareness capabilities at a significantly reduced cost compared to larger, more complex satellites, and serves as a gap filler mission for the Space-Based Space Surveillance (SBSS) Block 10 mission.
