Lockheed Turns On GPS III System Module Power; Keoki Jackson Comments

LockheedLogoA Lockheed Martin-led team has turned on the power for the system module in the U.S. Air Force‘s GPS III satellite constellation scheduled for first launch in 2014.

The team integrated the module’s mechanics and will move forward to electrical and integrated hardware-software testing, Lockheed said Thursday.

Team members include ITT Exelis, General DynamicsATK, Infinity Systems Engineering, Honeywell and other subcontractors.

“The successful integration of the first satellite's system module follows on the heels of our pathfinder GPS III Non-Flight Satellite Testbed,” said Keoki Jackson, vice president of Lockheed's navigation systems mission area.

Lockheed and its team members will complete the assembly, integration and testing work at its GPS processing facility.
