It will join GPS III SV01 — launched December 2018, the GPS III SV02 — launched July 2019, and other operational GPS satellites already in orbit.

The launch time frame is 3:55 p.m.– 4:15 p.m. EST and can be viewed at

Current weather forecasts predict isolated thunderstorms in the area during launch time. In the event the launch is delayed, the forecast for Wednesday worsens with scattered thunderstorms in the area.
