SpaceX’s twenty-first flight of 2018 launched the first of the new GPS III satellites (Block IIIA) for the United States Air Force and was SpaceX’s first EELV mission. The spacecraft was delivered to a MEO transfer orbit from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. This mission was the first to fly with the redesigned COPV on the first stage (B1054) as well as the second. The booster was expended.
