NASA Mobile Launcher Mount Lifting Sling

RS&H provided design services for the Launch Mount Lifting Sling for NASA at Kennedy Space Center. The sling was used to transfer the Launch Mount from Deck 0 of the Mobile Launcher to a storage and maintenance stand.

Design included:

  • Modeling and analysis in Pro E Wildfire and Pro Mechanical
  • Ability of the sling to break down into multiple individual components in order to be stored on a Department of Transportation-approved trailer
  • Lifting Capacity of 500,000 lbs
  • Use of ASME Y14.5 GD&T practices to control the location, form, and orientation of the multiple pins, plates, and other mating features of the sling
