United Launch Alliance will launch an Atlas V carrying the sixth and last Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) spacecraft into orbit.

The Atlas V will fly in the 551 configuration with a single core booster, 5 solid rocket boosters, a 5 metre Payload Fairing and a single Centaur upper stage.

The Lockheed Martin-built Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) spacecraft are managed by the U.S. Space Force Space and Missile Systems Center. AEHF satellites provide global, survivable, protected communications capabilities for strategic command and tactical warfighters operating on ground, sea and air platforms.
