GPS IIF-7 Launched Safely into Orbit

A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket carrying the seventh
GPS IIF satellite for the U.S. Air Force launched at 11:23 p.m. EDT
Friday, August 1 (03:23 UTC, August 2), from Space Launch Complex-41
at Cape Canaveral, Florida.The Boeing-built satellite has sent the
signals to controllers that confirm it is currently operating
properly within the constellation.

Boeing and the Air Force will complete the full on-orbit checkout of
the satellite in August. The GPS IIFs offer improved signal accuracy,
better anti-jamming capability, longer design life and the new
civilian L5 signal.
