USA 316, 317, 318 (NROL 111)

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.

Note: The NROL designations refer to the launch, not to the payload.
