US Air Force Issues RFPs For Five Upcoming Launches

6 July 2017
Space News reports that the US Air Force has released requests for proposals (RFPs) for five Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) Launch Service contracts, in an effort to “to streamline and speed the acquisition process.” Included are the contracts to launch “Air Force Space Command Satellite 8 and Satellite 12” and “three GPS 3 launches.” Launch Enterprise Directorate Director Claire Leon said, “By doing five at once, it makes our acquisition more efficient and it allows the contractors to put in one proposal.” Commenting on reusable rockets, Leon said, “We are trying to reduce the cost of launch, and if this is the offering from commercial providers we need to get on board.” (Image Credit: NASA/Tony Gray, Gina Mitchel)
