A problem with the U.S. Air Force AN/MPS-39 Multiple Object Tracking Radar (MOTR) at the Eastern Range, reportedly a fire, has delayed the launch of the National Reconnaissance Office's NROL-67 launch and now unofficially SpaceX's launch of the CRS-3 resupply mission to the International Space Station.


A fire at an Air Force radar has delayed the National Reconnaissance Office's (NROL-67) launch of its classified satellite to no earlier than Thursday, April 10.


With the Launch Readiness Review completed last Friday, the National Reconnaissance Office (NROL-67) classified satellite is set for launch Tuesday on from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 2:48 p.m. EDT on a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V.
