LockheedLogoLockheed Martin has finished assembling the antennas to be installed on the first military communication satellite for the U.S. Air Force‘s GPS III constellation.

The antenna assemblies arrived at a Lockheed facility in Denver Sunday and the company is scheduled to hand over the satellite system to the Air Force in 2014, Lockheed said Monday.

Keoki Jackson, Lockheed vice president of navigation systems, said the antennas work to transmit navigation data used by military and civilian users.

Lockheed is contracted to produce four GPS III systems and has received funds to acquire components for the remaining satellites.

ITT Exelis and General Dynamics serve as subcontractors for the GPS III program.
