Report: SpaceX Deploys NRO Payload to Orbit - top government contractors - best government contracting eventSpaceX has launched the National Reconnaissance Office‘s classified payload dubbed NROL-76 aboard a company-built Falcon 9 rocket, TechCrunch reported Monday.

Falcon 9 lifted off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida and the rocket’s first stage was separated to perform controlled landing at SpaceX’s Cape Canaveral-based landing pad, reported TechCrunch.

The company postponed the initial launch attempt on Sunday due to a sensor problem, reports TechCrunch.

The NROL-76 mission marks SpaceX’s first space launch support for NRO.
