A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V 551 rocket is set to launch a communications satellite, the fourth in the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) series. The launch is for the United States Air Force and will provide secure connections between U.S. national leadership and deployed forces.


Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers the closest public viewing of launches, as well as launch commentary, bleacher seating and access to visitor complex exhibits and attractions.

Due to the launch window scheduled significantly outside visitor complex operating hours, no launch viewing opportunities are available for ULA Atlas V AEHF-4.

Helpful Links:

Availability of upcoming viewing opportunities is dependent upon the scheduled launch time and is subject to NASA and U.S. Air Force approval. Launch date, time, and viewing opportunities are subject to change. Launches can be affected by technical and mechanical issues as well as range operations and weather, either in advance or at the last minute.
