February 5, 2016 - A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket launches from Space Launch Complex 41, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 8:38a.m. EDT carrying a Global Positional Satellite (GPS 2F-10).

This marks the twelfth and final launch of the Global Positioning Satellites for the U.S. Air Force. The GPS 2F series is vital to U.S. national security and it also sustains the current GPS constellations. This provides greater accuracy for navigation, improves military signal and assists with commercial aviation and search and rescue operations.
