MAF Tenant Integration

MAF has defined operations concept in place for our tenants. Each tenant, whether federal or commercial, has an assigned NASA Production Support Systems Manager (PSSM), as well as a Site Operations Contractor Production Support Lead Engineer (PSLE) as their primary points of contact. The PSSMs and PSLEs communicate with their assigned tenants daily to understand tenants’ needs as well as provide technical support and solutions to ensure the success of tenant operations at MAF.

Production Support

This imagery shows how technicians at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility moved the aft dome of the liquid oxygen tank for NASA’s SLS (Space Launch System) rocket for the next phase of production inside the Vertical Assembly center Dec. 5. The dome will form part of the core stage that will power NASA’s Artemis III mission. Engineers will soon rotate the dome to attach it to the previously joined forward dome and aft barrel segments using friction-stir welding.  The liquid oxygen tank is one of five major components that make up the SLS rocket’s core stage. Together with the forward skirt, intertank, liquid hydrogen tank, engine section, along with the four RS-25 engines at its base, the 212-foot core stage will help power NASA’s Artemis missions to the Moon.
