Vertical Launch Complex development

20 11 2008

Following client requests, AIA decided to install a second vertical launch facility to WI.  The new pad is, in essence, a smaller version of the mighty GPLP.  It’s 50 meter tower is designed to facilitate launch of smaller rockets.  The VAB complex has also been extended to accomodate the new pad.

Along with this came the redevelopement of the support buildings, finally replacing the last of the cold war era buildings and bringing order to the complex.

Here are 2 shots of the vertical Launch Complex after the expansion.
