Firefly Aerospace has successfully launched its Alpha rocket and deployed the VICTUS NOX spacecraft following a 24-hour notice to complete final payload operations and mission preparations.
The mission advances the nation’s capability to rapidly respond to on-orbit needs during a conflict or in response to a national security threat.
