Launch Mount and Adaptor at Launch Pad 0A

RS&H provided design drawings and construction support for a Multivehicle Launch Mount at Launch Pad 0A at Wallops Flight Facility.

The design accommodates a class of launch vehicles with a maximum thrust of one million pounds. The mount is designed to hold down test fire for one and a half minutes. It was evaluated against multiple load scenarios, including vehicle loads and rotation of the vehicle. The mount consists of welded steel plates, and it’s designed with a large, thin top surface supported by narrow legs to maintain the stiffness requirements, which accommodates multiple vehicles through the use of interchangeable interfaces.
