The GPS IIF-10 spacecraft was successfully launched to its Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) at 1536 GMT on 15 July 2015 by an Atlas V 401 rocket operated by the United Launch Alliance (ULA). The Boeing-built 1,630kg spacecraft is officially military in nature and is operated by the US Air Force. However, the GPS navigation system is extensively used by civilian and commercial enterprises. The spacecraft will replace GPS Navstar IIR-11 in the active constellation.
