5 million pounds of thrust were used in the rocket’s 5:56 p.m. EST liftoff.

Long Duration Propulsive ESPA and Continuous Broadcast Augmenting SATCOM were two military satellite systems that were part of the payload.

A geostationary relay satellite is the first system, and it improves communication capabilities to help U.S. security leaders. The second transports and controls smaller payloads for the programme while also giving the US Space Force data.

Prototype devices for safe space-to-ground communication are also part of the payloads.

After a three-year delay between the third and fourth missions, Sunday’s Falcon Heavy launch was the second in the last three months.

According to SatNews, programme executive officer for Assured Access to Space Maj. Gen. Stephen Purdy said, “This is a challenging mission and fully epitomises what Assured Access to Space is about. This is why we’re so pleased about this forthcoming launch…our second Falcon Heavy in just months.”

The TETRA 1 microsatellite, created by Boeing subsidiary Millennium Space Systems for the American military, was launched into orbit on November 1 as part of the USSF-44 mission.

This year, there will be four additional launches of the Falcon Heavy.
