Any info on where this info came from? I did some searching and I can't find any sources. <insert complaint about nextspaceflight never giving any kind of clarification how certain they are of dates>
LEO is the ocean, not an island (let alone a continent). We create cruise liners to ride the oceans, not artificial islands in the middle of them. We need a physical place, which has physical resources, to make our future out there.

Ditto regarding Spaceflight Now?
SFN Launch Schedule, updated October 9:
Launch TBD (listed with other TBD end of 2023 launches)

And, see Alex's cross-posting five posts above this post: He admits that his sources regarding national security launches have changed information several times recently.
https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=59301.msg2526232#msg2526232

Yes, I assume NextSF uses reliable confidential sources, just as Ben Cooper, Stephen Clark, Jeff Foust, and other spaceflight journalists do.

Dr. Tournear gave an "early 2024" estimate for the launch today

https://spacenews.com/space-development-agency-aims-high-for-2024-after-strong-2023-start/

Quote
Tournear said SDA’s immediate priority early next year will be to launch these four L3Harris missile-tracking satellites. They are scheduled to fly to orbit alongside other Missile Defense Agency satellites on the USSF-124 Space Force mission but no launch date has yet been announced.

Delayed to Q2 2024 due to a technical issue with one of the HBTSS satellites:

Quote
Pentagon agencies team up in upcoming launch of hypersonic tracking satellites
Satellites developed by the Missile Defense Agency and the Space Development Agency will be part of a national security space mission currently projected for the second quarter of 2024

December 28, 2023

The Missile Defense Agency confirmed that a national security space mission that had been projected to launch in December 2023 is being delayed until the second quarter of 2024 due to technical issues with one of the spacecraft.

“One vendor’s space vehicle was ready to support a December 2023 launch; however, the launch was delayed to no earlier than the second quarter of fiscal year 2024 due to technical issues encountered by the other vendor during final integration testing,” MDA spokesman Mark Wright said in a statement.

[...]

MDA did not disclose which of the two HBTSS payloads is having technical issues. A source close to SDA said “any delay at this point is not related to the L3Harris” Tracking Layer satellites.

SN article headline and lede poorly edited; Federal Government fiscal Q2 2024 = chronological year Q1 2024 = January through March.  MDA is a federal agency.

My bold:

IM-1 scheduled 16 hours before. Is that enough time for analysis or is a delay to one or other assured/probable?

Edit I thought I had read somewhere here that it got applied to all govt launches not just crew launches but perhaps that was DoD launches not space force launches or something like that? or I could be completely mistaken.

True, they don't. But the NGA area (red) fits very neatly within the NOTAM area (yellow), so it probably is for this launch.
