#SpaceX | #Iridium4Next – Pre Christmas launch of the Falcon nine with those Clustered Merlin engines…


On the eves of Christmas Eve on 22nd December 2017 West Coast time- California (23rd December 2017- Hong Kong –New Zealand) – is the launch of the SpaceX Falcon nine in which this launch is a non-traditional Falcon nine launch for Space X due to it would not be landing back on a Drone Ship on either “Just Read the Instructions” that “I Still Love You” … of the west coast.. From Vandenberg Air force Base California… the previously of the used Falcon nine in which was used in the Iridium 4 payload deployment SLC-4E in June 2017…..

The launch window of SpaceX- Iridium4Next sets of ten satellites is set to be launch from Launch Complex 4E in which originally design previously for the Atlas then modified for SpaceX’s requirements.. The window launch is at 1727 Pacific Savings Time in which there’ll be a forwarding back window just in case on following day of the same time…

The Next Generation of Iridium 4 Next Satellites, manufactured by Thales Alenia Space, is set to replace the existing satellite networks with innovative next generation data communications provisionments with eighty one planned to orbit around Planet Earth..  in a constellation formation  in which the communication provisionments is delivering high velocities of Data Communications in services providing for aviation, Marine time, internet Data provisions communications with terrestrial towards non and government organisations.. one of many innovations is the Aviation surveillance tracking  systems that will gives real time air traffic controls of global visibility with ADS-B Equipped Aircraft..

#OrbitalATK #SpaceX | #IridiumNext –construction and testing… the Iridium 81’s


Under construction also testing currently at the moment in a car – Aircraft manufacturing type line is the construction of eighty one Iridium Next Satellites in Orbital ATK‘s Gilbert Arizona Satellite Manufacturing facility… As Orbital ATK is under contract from Thales Alenia Space to manufacture eighty one satellites to replacing its aging Constellation Satellites in which it was launched from a series of SpaceX falcon nines reusable carrier rocket booster that launched from its Vandenberg air force base also another location from the Iconic NASA’s launch complex 39A, in which launched the Saturn five Apollo mission to the moon, then converted to the STS-Space Transportation System-Space Shuttle mission..

Iridium Next Constellation is built from very ground up like assembly of building from a ground up of an aircraft or a car… in which the satellites are designed for LEO- Low Earth Orbit in with back up, also spare parts…. As with the LEO- Low Earth Orbit of 780 Kilometers above earth to allow shorter transmission paths also with given stronger signal gains of a LEO with a lower Latency, shorter registration time than having a GEO- Geo Stationary Orbit..  With the numerous clusters of the Iridium Next network in LEO, it’ll will minimized the empty spots therefore increasing the area coverage of continuing communications with overlapping communication coverage spots to minimizes dropped connections and various types of communications….  As the network is in LEO travelling in orbit at 27360 Km/hour it cover more communications requirements in each orbit takes 100 minutes ….

The Next launch of the IridiumNext cluster of ten satellites per launch is targeted for Ninth October 2017 with SpaceX Falcon Nine at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) in California at 0537 Pacific Date time Californian morning..
