The Advanced Extremely High Frequency 5 (AEHF-5) mission for the U.S. Air Force has been delayed twice now, pushing its scheduled launch back over a month. The new launch date is now targeted for NET August 8th, according to ULA. However, while the delays are undesirable, they follow a roadmap of ULA’s insistence on utilizing an abundance of caution to achieve mission success.

(Moved, because it's an ongoing program)

Considering the cost of both booster and satellite; check twice, launch once, is the only reasonable approach.
