 GPS IIF-12 BETELGEUSE USAF MISSION SATELLITE VEHICLE PATCH SPACE DEAD ON TARGET

THIS IS A 4" PATCH AND IS IN MINT CONDITION.  

MISSION LAUNCHED FROM THE CAPE CANAVERAL AIR FORCE STATION (CCAFS) ON AN ATLAS V ROCKET
Behold the GPS IIF‐12 Mission Patch: The Space Vehicle (SV) designated for this mission is SV‐09, whose guiding‐star is Betelgeuse. In Arabic, Betelgeuse means “the hand of the central one” or the hand of Orion. As part of the Orion constellation, Betelgeuse is the hunter’s right shoulder. As the beholder views the patch, spinning counter‐clockwise in the background is the Betelgeuse star. As SV‐09’s guiding star it highlights the vehicle’s tendency to resist program schedules. The star’s variable brightness is indicative of SV‐09’s bright and occasionally not‐so bright development. Just in front of Betelgeuse is the hunter, the Orion constellation, symbolic of the mission of the GPS constellation; a distant hunter, patient, out of reach but providing accuracy to military missions. In the middle‐ground is the earth, the platform from which SV‐09 will be sent to join its IIF comrades and predecessors in the GPS constellation. The three white stars on earth represent the primary geographical sites bringing SV‐09 online for worldwide users. Extending from earth to beyond the coin’s foreground is the Atlas V rocket which symbolizes transporting the vision on earth to its mission in space. The 12 pointed edges of the border symbolize the team’s year‐round dedication to cut through obstacles and barriers to ensure a timely launch, and quality space vehicle against all the odds. In the foreground of the patch is SV‐09, placed as the coin’s centerpiece to embody the increased attention the vehicle required during production, pre‐shipment and launch processing. SV‐09 stares upon its beholder, composed yet submissive, reminding onlookers of its notorious history and its devilish temperament. The symmetry of design indicates that the SV has attained balance, and will no longer be a problem to the team

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of a network of 24 satellites placed into orbit by the U.S. Department of Defense. GPS was originally intended for military applications, but in the 1980s, the government made the system available for civilian use. GPS works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day.
