NROL-111 payloads [NRO]

The NROL 111 launch carries three not yet identified payloads for the NRO to be launched on a Minotaur-1 rocket from Wallops Island. The target orbit is not known.

These are likely experimental one-off payloads.

The launch was planned for December 2018, but has been delayed to June 2021.
