GPSIIF11_SupportImageA United Launch Alliance Atlas V 401 will launch the GPS IIF-11 mission for the U.S. Air Force on Friday, Oct. 30, from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.

GPS IIF-11 is the second to last of the Block IIF satellites, incorporating improvements to provide greater accuracy, increased signals, and enhanced performance for users.

The GPS IIF satellites deliver second civil signal (L2C) for dual-frequency equipment, and a new third civil signal (L5) to support commercial aviation and safety-of-life applications. The next generation of GPS satellites is GPS III.

GPS IIF-11 will be the third GPS mission ULA launches in 2015. GPS IIF-9 launched on a Delta IV in March, and GPS IIF-10 launched in July. This mission will be ULA’s 11th in 2015 and 102nd since the company was founded in 2006.
