GPS IIF-12 arrival

Brig. Gen. Wayne Monteith, 45th Space Wing commander, talks with the members of the quality assurance team range who will process the GPS IIF-12 satellite that arrived at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., Oct. 8, 2015. The last Air Force GPS IIF in a block of 12 satellites was delivered to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, from Boeing’s manufacturing facility in El Segundo, California Oct. 8 via a C-17 Globemaster III from March Air Reserve Base, Calif. 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.
