Orion LAS Team Visits New Orleans for Ogive Checkup
Members of the Orion Launch Abort System (LAS) team met at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility (MAF) in New Orleans to review progress of the assimilation of the LAS Ogive Assembly, which will be flown on the Exploration Flight Test-1 Mission, launching in 2014.
Precision integration of the Ogive Assembly, which plays a part in protecting the crew module — where the astronauts sit — providing protection during its journey through the atmosphere, is performed using the Ogive Integration Tool.
