Delta 4-Heavy Rocket Launch at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station

Cape Canaveral FL, January 17th 2009: Securiguard Security Forces were instrumental in securing the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in support of the safe and successful launch of a United Launch Alliance Delta 4-Heavy Rocket carrying a payload for the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office on January 17th, 2009. The largest of the Delta 4 family of rockets, the Heavy version features three Common Booster Cores mounted together to form a triple-body rocket. For this launch, SGI Security Forces provided extended restricted area security, set up numerous road blocks, and cleared the blast danger/flight caution areas. Cape Canaveral Air Force Station is one of two ranges in the United States that provide unhindered access to space to meet U.S. national security objectives.
