In 2019, an agreement was signed to upgrade and refurbish Test Stand 4670 at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. The historic 300 ft tall stand will support testing of the BE-3U and BE-4 rocket engines which will power the Vulcan and New Glenn launch vehicles. Among the systems being renewed are those for feeding the various flight gasses to the motors. Astro Pak’s extensive experience working on test and launch ground support systems made us the obvious choice for this project.
We mobilized out of Astro Pak’s Space Coast Facility in Titusville, FL and brought a mobile lab to perform on-site cleanliness verification testing.
Hydrotest, clean, passivate and dry 9,700 feet of piping that will be used to transport liquid oxygen, liquified natural gas, gaseous nitrogen and gaseous helium.
Founded in 1959, Astro Pak has worked on every major national space program dating back to the the Cold War – via our cleanrooms and at test and launch sites.
