SpaceX signs framework for potential military launch deal

spaceflightnow.com said:

The U.S. Air Force and SpaceX have signed an agreement allowing the commercial space transportation firm to eventually compete for launch contracts of the military's most expensive and sensitive satellites.

The move opens the door for SpaceX to work its way into the Pentagon's space launch architecture and compete directly with United Launch Alliance to lift communications, navigation, missile warning and reconnaissance satellites into space.
