Usaf Launch Services Agreement
“We have made an incredibly compelling offer for the national security community and the American taxpayer,” said Bob Smith, CEO of Blue Origin. New Glenn`s offer was “a unique, very competitive start-up service price for each mission over the entire order period.” Unless companies protest the awarding of the contract, northrop, Blue Origin or other challengers will be able to compete to launch national security, in Phase 3 of NSSL, but the department`s approach and timing for these efforts are still being evaluated. Members of the Launch Services Program are looking for the launch of NASA spacecraft.  Research themes are (partial list): The Space and Missile Systems Center of the U.S. Space Force, which oversees the acquisition of launch contracts, said in a statement to SpaceNews that both contracts include financing assistance costs, in addition to the price companies offer for launch services. Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa)  and is part of the CSLI. ELaNa demonstrates the CubeSats selected by CSLI on future missile launches. The CubeSats were first launched when DSP missions were launched in 2011. ELaNa missions do not manifest themselves exclusively in DSP missions; they were part of NGOs/military launches and ELaNa V will be on a resupply launch of the International Space Station. ELaNa mission numbers are based on the order in which they are shown; Due to the nature of the launch, the actual starting order differs from mission numbers. On June 15, 2013, the team launched a StangSat engineering unit on the Prospector 18 rocket;  The suborbital flight took off from the Rocketry Friends of Amateur site in the Mojave Desert in California.  The other satellites on board were Rocket University Broad Initiatives CubeSat or RUBICS-1 (KSC); PhoneSat (ARC); CP-9 (CalPoly). Although the parachute was deployed early, leading to a hard landing, the four satellites were able to collect actionable data.
 On August 12, 2019, at least three of the four companies submitted their final offers for the service service competition. SpaceX offered the existing falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy launchers, while Blue Origin was expected, New Glenn, ULA bid Vulcan Centaur, and the status of NGIS auctions was not declared. Blue Origin also filed a preliminary protest against the application on proposal, on the grounds that the requirements were ambiguous.  [need to be updated] The additional payment to the original claimants, which valued an industry source at about $100 million per company, was unexpected. It recalls the “ELC” funding that the Air Force used previously for the payment of ULA and which has been criticized by SpaceX as a public subsidy that commercial enterprises do not receive. Despite this loss, Blue Origin continues to stick to Phase 2, as Blue Origin`s BE-4 engine will power ULA`s Vulcan Centaur launcher.
