Lockheed completes integration of first GPS III spacecraft
from Inside GNSS
Lockheed Martin has finally been able to announce victory in its effort to complete integration of the first GPS Block III satellite. Integration took place last month at the company's GPS III Processing Facility near Denver, Colorado, bringing together the system module — which includes the navigation payload that performs the primary positioning, navigation, and timing mission — the functional bus containing the electronics that manage all satellite operations, and the propulsion core that enables the satellite to maneuver for operations on orbit.
