Launches reset on Eastern Range after radar failure
Posted: Sat, Apr 5, 2014, 12:22 PM ET (1622 GMT)
Two launches from Cape Canaveral last month postponed by the failure of a tracking radar have been reschedule for mid-April. The launches, of a classified National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) payload on an Atlas 5 and a Dragon cargo spacecraft to the International Space Station on a Falcon 9, were postponed in late March after a technical problem disabled a tracking radar at Cape Canaveral required to support those launches. Those launches have now been rescheduled: the Atlas 5 is now planned for launch on April 10, and the Falcon 9 on April 14, with a backup date of April 18. Air Force officials did not indicate whether the radar had been repaired or an alternative system put into place to track the launches.
