NROL-87 flew from Vandenberg Space Force Base on February 2nd, 2022, atop a Falcon 9 rocket whose booster returned to land at LZ-4.

The patch is PVC, 11 colors, 4" round and approximately 1/16" thick, and features only the NROL-87 mission designation as text.

- About the Patch -

NRO Launch-87 logo is of a wild mountain goat standing proud atop a mountain peak remaining watchfully alert. The NRO maintains constant vigilance from above in protecting our nation and its citizens. The snow-capped mountain in the background represents our nation’s unmatched preeminence in space.
