Rocket Launch Set For May 5th PDF Print E-mail

            The U.S. Air Force has set May 5 as the date for a military reconnaissance satellite to be launched at the Kodiak Launch Complex. A Minotaur IV rocket similar to the one launched last November will carry a TacSat-4 satellite to a high elliptical orbit.

            The TacSat-4 is designed to relay space-to-ground battlefield communications in real-time.

            The launch complex on Narrow Cape is owned and operated by the Alaska Aerospace Corporation which has been beset by funding challenges since losing its lucrative Missile Defense Agency contract last year.

            But CEO Dale Nash says a partner bid for ground-based missile defense at Fort Greeley will offer more opportunities over the next two to five years. In the meantime, the state-owned corporation has asked for $10 million in operating funds from the state. Gov. Sean Parnell's executive budget contains $4 million in dividends from the Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority to help fund the corporation.

            The funding request for $10 million is pending approval by the state Legislature, said Republican House Majority Leader Alan Austerman of Kodiak. Austerman also sits on the corporation's board of directors.

            The corporation's oversight was recently shifted from the state's economic development department to the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.

            Residents will have another chance to weigh in over whether to eliminate Dumpsters in the Mission District and expand curbside trash pickup.

            A Kodiak Island Borough work session sparked lively debate between those who support the idea of eliminating 13 dumpster sites and those opposed to the idea. Dumpsters would be replaced by individual wheel carts. More than 650 households would be affected by the change.

            While the borough is empowered to expand curbside service without taking a vote, the high level of public interest has led the Assembly to open a public hearing before putting the plan to a vote, said assistant clerk Jessica Kilborn.

            The hearing is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 17 at the borough's regular meeting. The proceedings will be carried live on KMXT.
