DigitalGlobe moves date of WorldView-4 satellite launch

digitalglobe-2-112DigitalGlobe, Inc. of Westminster, CO announced on October 10 that the WorldView-4 satellite launch has been delayed due to ongoing efforts to restore and test infrastructure at Vandenberg Air Force Base following last month’s wildfires.

DigitalGlobe is working closely with the U.S. Air Force and United Launch Alliance to identify a new launch date, targeting late October or early November.

The WorldView-4 satellite is safe and secure atop its Atlas V launch vehicle. The company continues to expect WorldView-4 to begin generating revenue in the first half of 2017.
