NASA/KSC plans to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for Ground Support Equipment installation in the Mobile Launcher. In order to meet the goals and objectives to send humans to a range of destinations beyond Low Earth Orbit (LEO), including cis-lunar space, near-Earth asteroids (NEAs), the Moon, and Mars; Kennedy Space Center (KSC) is developing capabilities to support the Space Launch System’s (SLS) heavy lift launch vehicle and Orion spacecraft. One of the KSC elements for ground support infrastructure that will fulfill the mission of NASA’s multi-destination human space exploration strategy is the ML. Originally constructed for the Ares I Vehicle under the Constellation Program, the ML will be modified under this contract to meet NASA’s beyond earth orbit mission. The objectives of the ML are the successful assembly, processing and launch of the integrated SLS heavy lift vehicle and Orion spacecraft. The ML is a critical element to meet the overall vehicle processing readiness schedules to meet NASA’s launch manifest.
