Boeing Delta IV Launch Scrubbed

The launch of a Boeing [NYSE: BA] Delta IV rocket was scrubbed in the final minutes of the countdown today from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.

At T-minus three minutes and seven seconds, a hold was called as an alarm triggered the automated launch system to discontinue the count.

The launch team attempted to address the alarm and perform an additional launch attempt at the end of the 77-minute window. The launch window closed before the team was able to complete all the recycle tasks.

The next launch attempt will be Sunday Mar. 9 at 6:43 p.m. EST.

A Boeing Delta IV Medium launch vehicle is scheduled to launch the Defense Satellite Communications System spacecraft, DSCS III A3 for the U.S. Air Force.
