Missile Defense Booster Test Delayed

The U.S. Missile Defense Agency has postponed a booster rocket test scheduled for today because of technical problems, the Lompoc Record reported yesterday (see GSN, Dec. 4).

Lockheed Martin was scheduled to launch its long-delayed booster rocket candidate for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense system, but the test is now scheduled for Thursday morning. Technicians must replace faulty electronics before the launch can take place, according to MDA spokesman Rick Lehner (Janene Scully, Lompoc Record, Dec. 14).
