It was the first launch for the Air Force of an Atlas II and the first launch of the Integrated Apogee Boost Subsystem (IABS). The IABS is a spin-stabilized liquid propulsion stage designed to lift the DSCS III satellite into synchronous orbit. This DSCS III satellite carries a payload with 10 watt High Efficiency Solid State Amplifiers (HESSAs), an increased bandwidth, and is the first multi-year procured satellite launched.
