Composite Structures in Orbital’s Three Recent ULA Atlas V Vehicles

April 23 2018

Orbital ATK recently supported the launches of three United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V vehicles with critical components and technologies from multiple divisions across the country. All three launches took place within 12 weeks and included multiple launch vehicle and payload hardware components manufactured by Orbital ATK.

For all three launches, Orbital ATK produced the ULA Atlas V vehicles’ 10-foot diameter composite heat shields, which provide essential protection for each first stage. For the GOES-S and AFSPC-11 launches, Orbital ATK provided two additional composite structures on each of ULA’s Atlas V launch vehicles, which include the Centaur Interstage Adapter (CISA) that houses the second stage engine, and the boat tail that adapts from the core vehicle to the five-meter diameter fairing. Orbital ATK fabricated all of these large composite structures at the company’s facility in Iuka, Mississippi.
