Taurus rocket on the market with new name, upgrades

Orbital Sciences Corp. is revamping its Taurus rocket with expertise and technology from the company's Minotaur launcher to deliver six high-resolution Earth observation satellites to orbit for start-up Skybox Imaging in late 2015.

The contract announced Thursday covers the launch of six satellites from Vandenberg Air Force Base on California's Central Coast. The spacecraft will be manufactured by Space Systems/Loral of Palo Alto, Calif., in a separate contract revealed Feb. 10.
