CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) -- The U.S. Air Force launched its latest Global Positioning System satellite Monday and it will begin service to U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf in record time.


The NAVSTAR GPS 2R-9 satellite was launched aboard a Boeing Delta 2 rocket from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 4:54 p.m. EST.


The new satellite will join a constellation of 27 GPS satellites in orbit 12,700 miles above Earth.
