The United Launch Alliance rocket carrying the satellite successfully launched from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station after being delayed about 30 minutes due to a technical issue.
The satellite, built by Boeing, will join a worldwide communications network used by the US military and its allies. It is the ninth satellite to join that network.
