A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta IV rocket carrying the eighth installment of the Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) satellite for the United States Air Force lifts off from Space Launch Complex-37. This was ULA’s 11th launch in 2016 and the 114th successful launch since the company was formed in December 2006. WGS satellites are an important element of a new high-capacity satellite communications system providing enhanced communications capability to our troops in the field.
