Delta II Launch of ARGOS Satellite On Hold

Officials here have cancelled Monday morning's launch attempt of the U.S. Air Force ARGOS spacecraft due to predicted inclement weather in the local area.

Weather will preclude launching the Boeing Delta II through Tuesday. The Air Force and Boeing launch team will continue to monitor the weather and range availability to establish a new launch date.

The Boeing Delta II is scheduled to carry the Advanced Research and Global Observation Satellite along with the Danish Ørsted and South African SUNSAT into sun-synchronous and near, sun-synchronous orbits.

Once the launch team establishes the new launch date, it will be released along with the corresponding broadcast information.
