SpaceX said it has “100%” of all three satellites in its constellation in orbit, but the company has not yet confirmed which three.
SpaceX said Friday that its launch vehicles are “on-line, fully operational and operating in the same environment” that it was in last week when it launched the Space Launch System rocket.
In a statement, SpaceX said: “The launch of the SLS-XL rocket was scheduled to occur at 12:40 p.m.
(13:40 GMT) today (Monday) from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
We are currently conducting an extensive safety review.
The launch of our first payload, Dragon 2, was postponed due to adverse weather conditions and the vehicle was placed on hold for inspection.
We will continue to work diligently to bring the vehicle online and into the vehicle.
We have been working to identify any issues with the vehicle and will have more information as it becomes available.”
The company said the flight is scheduled to fly from Cape May, Florida, on a Falcon 9 rocket.
SpaceX has launched dozens of commercial satellites to orbit in recent years, and its satellites are now in orbit for the first time.
The SpaceX launch, however, was one of the last of its kind, as the company’s main booster engine has not been working as planned for the last six months.
The engine is set to fail sometime in October, according to SpaceX, and SpaceX’s last two missions were aborted.
SpaceX said in March that the Falcon 9 had suffered two failed launches in the last 18 months, with both failures causing engine failures.
The company had hoped to launch two more satellites on its next flight, but it has delayed that flight to late 2019.
SpaceX is also considering putting its Falcon Heavy rocket on a resupply mission to the International Space Station, but that has been pushed back.
