A Titan 4 no-upper stage is currently scheduled for launch from Vandenberg
Air Force Base on Sunday 12 May, with a window announced as between noon and
4 PM Pacific time. Based on an earlier announcement, subsequently withdrawn,
of a launch window between 3-7 PM Pacific, local observers are anticipating
a launch at around 3 PM Pacific.

As of this writing, no further information is available concerning the
configuration of this launch vehicle or of the shroud.

Stay tuned for further developments.
