MUOS4

The launch of a new Lockheed Martin-built Mobile User Objective System satellite has been moved to Wednesday due to tropical storm Erika, SpaceFlight Insider reported Monday.

Lockheed said Friday MUOS-4 will join the other three satellites in the U.S. Navy“™s communications satellite network that works to provide video, data and voice capabilities for mobile uniformed personnel through an Internet protocol-based platform.

The launch follows work by Lockheed technicians to encapsulate MUOS-4 into a launch fairing platform.

Lockheed expects to launch MUOS-5 as a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access spare next year.
