Delta IV-M+(5,4) - WGS-10 - March 2019
« on: 11/12/2018 09:29 pm »
This is the next Delta IV launch from Cape Canaveral's SLC-37B.

Launch window, as of this posting: January 23/24, 2019, 23:40-00:35 UTC = January 23, 2019, 6:40-7:35 pm EST

WGS-7, 8, 9, and 10 are the satellites in the WGS Block 2 follow-on contract.

From the Wideband Global SATCOM Backgrounder at:
http://www.boeing.com/resources/boeingdotcom/space/boeing_satellite_family/pdf/Bkgd_WGS.pdf
Quote
The Wideband Digital Channelizer upgrade, which was awarded in June 2012, will be included on WGS-8 and beyond and will provide a 90 percent improvement in satellite bandwidth.
(The Backgrounder publishing date is November 2015, after the WGS-7 launch.)

From the post with Starliner adapter unloading pictures (https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=43958.msg1875342#msg1875342), it looks like the first stage for WGS-10 was also being delivered on the Mariner.

I wonder if the DCSS was also aboard?

Right. The last Delta IV Medium will launch the second GPS-III satellite in the summer.
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.
