GPS IIF-12 arrival

Capt. Trung Nguyen, 45th Launch Support Squadron field program manager, explains his role as the interface between the 45th Space Wing and the Air Force Space and Missile Center for the GPS IIF-12 satellite with Brig. Gen. Wayne Monteith, 45th SW commander, while standing on the loading dock of the Air Force C-17 Globemaster that delivered the last model of the IIF series to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Oct. 8, 2015. A crowd from the government and industry partnership, who will complete the satellite’s final assembly, gathered on the Cape’s “Skid Strip” to watch the off-loading of the satellite they will prepare to launch aboard a United Launch Alliance rocket in 2016.
