A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket will launch the fourth communications satellite in the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) series for the U.S. Air Force.

The Altlas V will fly in the most powerful configuration having a single core booster, 5 strap-on solid rocket boosters a single Centaur upper stage and a 5 metre payload fairing.

AEHF satellites provide highly-secure, jam-proof connectivity between U.S. national leadership and deployed military forces. Atlas V rockets successfully launched the first three AEHF satellites in 2010, 2012 and 2013 as the new constellation was formed in geosynchronous orbit 22,300 miles above Earth.
