IMINT (Reconnaissance) - The VV15 launch failure was possibly caused by a thermal protection design flaw on the second stage's forward dome area, and has led to reassignment of the Falcon Eye 2 launch. This also led to the highest recorded amount for an insurance claim for a satellite launch failure.
