"The team is currently working through a single anomaly affecting the solar array boom," the spokesperson said in a response to written questions. "The boom successfully deployed, but stopped approximately 30 degrees short of its nominal position, and did not lock into place."
...so this launch represents a long partnership in monitoring and predicting weather," said Sue Stretch, DMSP program director at Lockheed Martin. "I congratulate the entire Air Force-industry team that designed, built and tested this satellite, which is ready to serve our military and civil users."
The takeover, officials said, "stems from the need for NOAA to divert manpower and resources to ensuring the newly launched satellite is properly acquired. This includes ensuring the satellite is placed in a proper low-earth orbit, running systems checks to confirm communication with ground stations and uploading and downloading data to the satellite, certifying the satellite can capture a variety of weather-related imagery -- all while traveling at 25 times the speed of sound."
...the House Armed Services Committee's subcommittee on strategic forces during a budget hearing for national security space activities here, April 3. "Just this morning, we had a very successful Defense Meteorological Satellite Program launch out of Vandenberg Air Force Base, (Calif.), on an Atlas V" Shelton said. DMSP is the primary provider of terrestrial and space weather information
