A recovery ship has been stationed about 600 miles downrange from the launch site.
It will retrieve the first stage, which SpaceX has built to be reusable. The stage carries Global Positioning System equipment, a radio direction finder and two sonar beacons -- one forward and one aft.
Ballistic predictions and radar will be used to project the impact point and the rocket's devices will steer the recovery forces to the right spot.
