Atlas V 511 | USSF-8

United Launch Alliance | USA
Cape Canaveral, FL, USA
Jan. 21, 2022, 7 p.m.
Status: Go for Launch
Mission: Government/Top Secret

USSF-8 will launch two identical Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program (GSSAP) satellites GSSAP-5 and GSSAP-6 directly to a near-geosynchronous orbit approximately 36,000 km above the equator. Data from the GSSAP will uniquely contribute to timely and accurate orbital predictions, further enabling space flight safety including satellite collision avoidance. Unique to this mission is the first and only planned flight of the Atlas V 511 configuration.
