NASA Wallops Picked For Air Force Minotaur I Launches
VANDENBERG EAST: U.S. Air Force space planners have picked NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia's Atlantic coast to launch the upcoming TacSat 2 satellite mission for the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) onboard a Minotaur I rocket. The 61-year-old sounding-rocket facility also will launch the Near-Field Infrared Experiment (Nfire) aboard a Minotaur I for the Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency (MDA). Set for launch Nov. 13, TacSat 2 is an Advanced Concept Technology Demonstration that will wring out AFRL's ability to design, build and test a spacecraft within 15 months.
