Space Launch Delta 30 successfully launched the Tactically Responsive Launch-2 (TacRL-2) mission on a Northrop Grumman Pegasus XL rocket on June 13, at 1:11 a.m. PDT from Vandenberg Space Force Base.
Space Launch Delta 30 provided range support for the United States Space Forces tactically responsive launched two mission on Sunday June 13th from Vandenberg Space Force Base. The launch decision authority for this mission was Colonel Robert long space launch Delta 30 Commander Space Launch. Delta 30 provided launch permission, range safety area clearing and weather support for the launch. So the 30th operation support squadron typically provides a wide variety of support to any launch here. At the western range. Our weather officers provide on console support by evaluating weather conditions for the rocket launch to make sure that the conditions are safe. The attack RL two mission was executed by the small launch and targets division within the space and missile systems centers launched enterprise and the payload was sent into orbit using Northrop garments Pegasus XL rocket. This this is a whole new program for us and they’re operating on a much shorter timeline. Whereas the timeline would normally be years in development for a payload and months of planning to get a launch date set and lead up to that date and actually have a successful mission. The entire timeline for this program was much shorter, specific mission for Tech RL, being part of a demonstration of a brand new capability and just really exciting to be part of that as we start a new capability for the Space Force.
