Space industry heavyweight Northrop Grumman has signed a customer for the launch of its first OmegA rocket, a medium/heavy-lift launch vehicle that it's currently readying for flight with a target of spring 2021 for its first-ever flight. OmegA will unlock additional payload capacity versus the launch systems that Northrop Grumman has developed and flown previously, with the primary goal of being able to serve the interests of the company's top customers -- defense and national security agencies. OmegA's development has been funded in part through U.S. government contracts, including a $792 million Launch Services Agreement it signed with the U.S. Air Force to finish the rocket's design, as well as to furnish and prepare the launch sites from which it'll take off.
