The launch was the third launch of the Minotaur rocket from the NASA facility that partners with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport. TacSat-3 is the first mission whose payload selection process was based on recommendations from combatant commanders around the world. As the primary funding agent for TacSat-3, the Operationally Responsive Space Office is responsible for facilitating the transition of the TacSat-3 technology to operational capabilities.
