A group led by ITT Corp. on Monday announced plans for a $33-million commercial-satellite "spaceport" at Vandenberg Air Force Base, in an effort to capture part of the booming launch business that is now concentrated in South America, China and Russia. The spaceport would specialize in preparing and aiding the launches of small- to medium-size payloads of up to 5,000 pounds and, if successful, would be the only major site for commercial satellite launches in the United States.
