JAWSAT Mission Registration

    Get ready for the historic JAWSAT launch from Spaceport Systems International's commercial spaceport at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Register here to view the launch in real-time, as it happens. It's the first time the Air Force will launch from a commercial facility, and the first-ever launch to orbit onboard a converted Minuteman II launch vehicle.

    Several small satellites, built by students at the Air Force Academy, Weber State University in Utah, Arizona State University, and Stanford, and a free-flying experiment built by the Air Force Research Lab, will ride the JAWSAT aloft on a space launch vehicle powered by a converted Minuteman II missile. Under the Air Force's Rocket Systems Launch Program (RSLP), the Orbital/Suborbital Program (OSP) contractor, Orbital Sciences, converts decommissioned missile hardware into a launch vehicle capable boosting of these small satellites into orbit.
