The GPS IIF navigation satellite provides better real-time Position, Navigation and Timing services to the warfighter and commercial civil users around the globe.

The Delta 4 rocket has been used to launch a host of National Reconnaissance Office satellites, Air Force communications spacecraft and NASA weather observatories. Now, it looks to add to its service of maintaining the GPS constellation.
