There are two distinct efforts for which the LDPE program office is soliciting information. The first effort will consist of one ESPA as described above and it needs to be able to meet the AFSPC-67 4th Qtr FY22 launch date. This ESPA will also be known as "LDPE-3". The second effort consists of 4 ESPAs with the first delivery needed in FY23. These ESPAs will be also known as "LDPE 4-7".

How many levels of nested acronyms do you need in one procurement? I'm not having much luck finding the RFP for this, but found an RFI on govtribe.
Other Government expectations are:•Production of three fully-integrated LDPEs at a rate of one per year (2019 – 2021)•The first LDPE launch (rideshare mission) is expected in April 2019
And the final launch of a Delta 4 medium version rocket will loft the second next-generation GPS III series satellite on June at the earliest.

The Falcon Heavy is slated to make its second flight from pad 39A carrying the Arabsat 6A communication satellite on late February or March at the earliest. A Falcon 9 is scheduled to launch the next Dragon resupply mission to the ISS, CRS-17, on mid-March TBD. The launch time is in the evening EDT if that time. The launch window is instantaneous. The launch time gets 22-26 minutes earlier each day.
NASA will review the performance data obtained from these flight tests and resolve any issues in order to certify the systems for operational missions. While NASA has not determined which provider will fly an operational mission first, the first two of these missions are targeted to launch in August and December 2019.
