United Launch Alliance has set a Nov. 11 launch date to lift DigitalGlobe‘s WorldView-4 satellite into space on-board a ULA Atlas V rocket on Nov. 11 from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

ULA said Wednesday its team is working to address Atlas V booster issues discovered during final launch preparations.

Lockheed Martin‘s space systems business built WorldView-4, which will work to deliver Earth imaging services for DigitalGlobe’s customers.

The deployment of WorldView-4 will be ULA’s ninth launch in 2016 and 112th since ULA was established in 2006.

Centennial, Colo.-based ULA is a 50-50 joint venture of Lockheed and Boeing.
