SLS Mobile Launcher and Extensible Columns

In preparation of NASA’s new Space Launch System, RS&H prepared the complete design, construction, and installation details for the Mobile Launcher’s extensible columns at Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39B.  The project included an initial study to determine the current stiffness ratio of the launch pad surface.  The installation design was then coordinated with other Mobile Launcher and Launch Pad 39B modifications, for which RS&H also developed the complete Ground Support Equipment installation design.
