Northrop Assembles, Assesses NASA Space Vehicle; Doug Young Comments

NorthropLogoNorthrop Grumman Corporation has concluded the third phase of testing on a new spacecraft under a five-year contract with NASA.

The Air Force‘s operationally responsive space office hosted an open house in Albuquerque, N.M. May 9 for the assembly and assessment of the Modular Space Vehicle, Northrop said Tuesday.

Doug Young, Northrop vice president of missile defense and advance missions, said the company aimed for the procedures to comply with ORS program requirements.

Phil Katz, Northrop MSV program manager, said the government’s investment in the program has helped develop components and other hardware for the MSV’s computer systems over the last two years and six months.

Advanced Defense Systems, Applied Technology Associates, Design Net Engineering, Microcosm Inc. and Utah State University's Space Dynamics Laboratory are members of the MSV project team.
