‘Unmatched power’: Alabama-built ULA rocket successfully launches another national security mission

Alabama on Monday once again powered a vital mission to space when a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta IV Heavy rocket successfully launched the NROL-82 mission for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).

The rocket — built at ULA’s world-class facility in Decatur — lifted off from Space Launch Complex-6 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Due to the classified nature of the mission, no specific information is able to be released regarding the payload. The NRO is a joint Department of Defense-Intelligence Community organization and is tasked with operating the nation’s intelligence satellites used for national security.
