Rocket/Payload: An Atlas V 401 will launch the GPS IIF-7 mission for the U.S. Air Force.

Date/Site/Launch Time: Friday, Aug. 1, 2014, from Space Launch Complex (SLC)-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. The 18-minute launch window opens at 11:23 p.m. EDT.

Viewing the Launch by Webcast: The live webcast will begin at 11:03 p.m. EDT.

GPS IIF-7 is one of the next-generation GPS satellites, incorporating various improvements to provide greater accuracy, increased signals, and enhanced performance for users.

Launch Updates: To keep up to speed with updates to the launch countdown, dial the ULA launch hotline at 1-877-852-4321 or join the conversation at www.facebook.com/ulalaunch and twitter.com/ulalaunch; hashtag #GPSIIF7.

The Air Force Second Space Operations Squadron indicates that IIF-7, SVN-68/PRN-3, will replace SVN-43 in the F plane slot 3 (F3). SVN-43 will be re-phased from F3 to the F2F slot to replace SVN-26. SVN-33 will be taken out of the operational constellation the day after SVN-68 launch and sent to Launch, Anomaly and Disposal Operations (LADO). SVN-33 was launched on 09 April 1996 successfully serving over 17.5 years, 10.5 years beyond its design life, due to the diligent efforts of the men and women of the U.S. Air Force. SVN-26 will back-up SVN-43 once it completes its re-phase journey.
