Cape Canaveral, Florida (FL), US
Delta IV is an active expendable launch system in the Delta rocket family.

The Autonomous Nanosatellite Guardian for Evaluating Local Space (ANGELS) project is an Air Force Research Laboratory project to develop a small satellite which can orbit close to a larger spacecraft and monitor the local space environment.

The Space Based Space Surveillance (SBSS) system is a planned constellation of satellites and supporting ground infrastructure that will improve the ability of the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to detect and track space objects in orbit around the Earth.
