Cape Canaveral, Florida (FL), US
Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Space Launch Complex 36 (SLC-36), previously Launch Complex 36 (LC-36) was a launch complex at Cape Canaveral, Florida. The complex was used for the Atlas rocket between 1962 and 2005.

The complex consisted of two pads, SLC-36A and B. Notably, the complex was the launch site for the Pioneer, Surveyor, and Mariner probes. There were 69 and 76 launches from pads 36A and 36B, respectively. The Atlas rockets launched from Complex 36 were replaced by the Atlas V that launches from Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral.

Aviation Week reports the Air Force committed to lease SLC-36 to Space Florida for future use by the Athena III launch system.
