The satellite meets all the compliance requirements.This satellite offers a more secure GPS than the other operational GPS satellites. The new satellite offers more accuracy and 8-times better anti-jamming capabilities and enhanced signals.

To allow better accessibility to M-code the U.S force is working of receivers. The receivers is enhanced can work on utilizing the new anti-jamming signal. The U.S force had announced operational acceptance of the version that allowed access of limited signals.This new addition of the satellite was initiated on June 18 from the Space X’s Falcon 9 rocket after the fourth launch of GPS III satellite in December 2020.
