    SBIRS GEO 1 is scheduled for launch from Cape Canaveral on an Atlas V-401, on 2011 May 06, between 18:14 UTC and 18:54
    UTC.
    
    
    The following elements are of the GTO (geosynchronous transfer orbit). The epoch corresponds to spacecraft separation,
    assuming launch at 18:14 UTC.
    
                                                           185 X 35786 km
    1 79301U          11126.78980903  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    08
    2 79301  21.6400 322.0000 7306200 178.0000   9.8800  2.28355000    06
    
    The spacecraft's LAE (liquid apogee engine) will be fired six times over a 9 day period to reach geosynchronous orbit.
    To my knowledge, the initial synchronous longitude has not been announced.
