Just Read the Instructions droneship is outbound from Port Canaveral for the GPS mission.

Tug Finn Falgout will tow JRTI 642 km downrange. Let's hope the weather on launch day is a bit better...!

A nice, fast exit well away from the LZ area for this week’s Falcon 9 launch :)

The tropics are getting active again. The low pressure near North Carolina could possibly make recovery a challenge for #GPSIII

.@SpaceForceDoD is hosting a media roundtable about the upcoming GPS III SV05 satellite launch scheduled for Thursday, with representatives from the Space and Missiles Systems Center, Space Launch Delta 45, Lockheed Martin and SpaceX.

Space Force’s Dr. Walter Lauderdale notes that, while SpaceX landed Falcon 9 boosters after two prior National Security Space Launch (NSSL) missions, this will be the first to launch with a previously flown (i.e., reused) rocket booster.

Dr. Lauderdale: "We've worked closely with SpaceX to understand the refurbishment processes and are confident that this rocket is ready for its next flight."

Lockheed Martin VP Tonya Ladwig says the company has the next three GPS III satellites "lined up and ready to be called" for launch at its Denver production facility.

The fifth #GPSIII satellite for @SpaceForceDoD has been enclosed in the nose of the rocket and is ready to hitch a ride to space.

I think it’s hilarious that Lockheed Martin is posting a Falcon 9 launch clip and sticking their logo all over it.

False.

GPS III-1, -3, -4, -5 were/will be launched by SpaceX. So 4th GPS III launch by SpaceX is GPS III-5. Next year, GPS III-6 will be the 5th.

GPS III-2 was launched by ULA.

It’s a typo, it happens a lot with Twitter.
