The US Air Force successfully added to its GPS Navigation satellite constellation with the successful launch of GPS IIF-5. The spacecraft which will be used by both military and civilian users, was launched by a Delta IVM+ 4,2 at 0159 GMT from the Cape Canaveral launch site in Florida, on 21 February 2014. The spacecraft’s launch had been delayed since October over launch vehicle concerns related to the partial failure of an upper stage engine burn on a previous flight.
