ЦитатаGPS III Space Vehicle 04 safely arrives in Florida
Space and Missile Systems Center Public Affairs / Published August 12, 2020

The U.S. Space Force Space and Missile Systems Center successfully delivered the fourth Global Positioning System (GPS) III satellite to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, July 14.

CAPE CANAVERAL AIR FORCE STATION, Fla. -- The U.S. Space Force Space and Missile Systems Center successfully delivered the fourth Global Positioning System (GPS) III satellite to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, July 14.

GPS III Space Vehicle (SV) 04 was safely transported from the Lockheed Martin facility in Waterton, Colorado to Space Coast Regional Airport in Titusville, Florida. The satellite was carried aboard a C-17 Globemaster III originating from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington.

The delivery of GPS III SV04 starts the clock for final testing and checkout prior to launch. The satellite will be processed at the Astrotech Space Operations facility in Florida to ensure the full functionality of the satellite, prepare the satellite for propellant loading, and encapsulate the satellite in its protective fairing. At the completion of these activities, the satellite will be horizontally integrated with the SpaceX Falcon 9 launch vehicle.

"The shipment of the fourth GPS III satellite was successfully conducted just two weeks after the launch of our GPS III-SV03 satellite. This operation is a remarkable achievement and testament to the hard work of the entire GPS team members from all across the country," said Col. Edward Byrne, SMC's Medium Earth Orbit Space Systems Division chief. "The delivery of SV04 marks the start of our third GPS III launch campaign on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and brings us another step closer in advancing the GPS constellation with more capable satellites."

GPS III SV04 is slated to launch in September 2020. Once on-orbit, it will join the operational constellation of 31 GPS satellites, delivering enhanced resiliency, better accuracy, and advanced anti-jam capabilities. GPS delivers the gold standard in positioning, navigation, and timing services supporting vital U.S. and allied operations worldwide, and underpins critical financial institutions, transportation services, and agricultural industries.

SpaceX is tentatively planning the Starlink launch for Sep 27th and a GPS launch for Sep 29th.

Both missions are droneship recoveries that will require OCISLY and JRTI to be underway at the same time.

Tug Finn Falgout should leave with JRTI again later today for Starlink. (1/2)

Tug Hawk (pictured) is rejoining the SpaceX recovery fleet to tow OCISLY for the GPS mission.

Hawk will be arriving at Port Canaveral late tonight to prepare for the mission. (2/2)

SpaceX is swapping the droneship for the Starlink mission.

Tug Finn Falgout returned last night with JRTI - following a postponement because of poor weather - but is now preparing to depart Port Canaveral with OCISLY droneship for the revised launch date - NET Sep 27.

43 мин. назад

This means that JRTI's next mission will be the GPS SV04 mission - NET Sep 29th.

Tug Hawk is en-route to Port Canaveral right now to collect the droneship and tow it outbound.

Yeah... so about that departure. I do believe we've been tricked!

Just Read the Instructions droneship and tug Hawk are actually conducting a sea trial just offshore. Watching and waiting to see what happens next.
