NEXT U.S. LAUNCH

  

GPS IIF-10 ULA

Mission: ULA / GPS IIF-10 Satellite for U.S. Air Force

– Launch Vehicle: Atlas-V 401 Rocket
– Launch Site:  SLC-41, Cape Canaveral, Fla.

A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas-V 401 rocket is scheduled to launch the GPS IIF-10 satellite for the U.S. Air Force from Cape Canaveral AFS Space Launch Complex-41 on July 15, with the launch window open from 11:36 a.m. EDT – 11:55 a.m. EDT. GPS IIF-10 is one of the next-generation GPS satellites, incorporating various improvements to provide greater accuracy, increased signals, and enhanced performance for users.

GPS IIF-10 marks the 55th Atlas-V launch since the vehicle’s inaugural launch in 2002, and the 27th flight of the 401 configuration. Every operational GPS mission has launched on a ULA or heritage rocket.

 

NOTE: All SpaceX launches are currently grounded while the investigation continues into what went wrong with CRS-7.
