New GPS satellite launched into space


Cape Canaveral (AP): A Delta 4 rocket has rumbled into the early morning sky from the Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral carrying a GPS satellite.

The rocket lit up the sky at 1211 IST Saturday after two consecutive days of delays due to technical and weather issues.

The United Launch Alliance Delta 4 rocket will place a navigation satellite into the Global Positioning System constellation for the Air Force.

The GPS 2F satellites provide enhanced military signals that have greater accuracy and are more resistant to signal jamming. They also have some civilian applications and a longer life expectancy than the previous generation of satellites.
