Lentech Staff Supporting NASA Kennedy Space Center and Preparations for the Artemis Missions to the Moon and Beyond

April 2021 – The NASA Artemis missions are a key element in NASA’s goal of returning astronauts to the moon and then to Mars. Per NASA’s website, “With Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before. We will collaborate with commercial and international partners and establish the first long-term presence on the Moon. Then, we will use what we learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars. Artemis 1 will be the initial launch of the Space Launch System (SLS), a powerful, advanced launch vehicle for a new era of human exploration beyond Earth’s orbit. With its unprecedented power and capabilities, SLS will launch crews of up to four astronauts in the agency’s Orion spacecraft on missions to explore multiple, deep-space destinations.

Lentech staff support Kennedy Space Center’s role as the nations spaceport, preparing critical launch infrastructure and systems to support Artemis 1. Lentech support includes providing systems and discipline engineering and IT services under the Kennedy EGS Program (LX) Support Services Contract-Three (KLXS III). Staff support as a subcontractor to Ares, Inc., the KLXS III prime contractor, consists of supporting the development of the Mobile Launcher 2 (ML2), as well as ground system interfaces with the SLS launch vehicle. Lentech staff also provide software development support to assist the KSC Exploration Ground Systems Program (EGS) effort in accomplishing NASA-managed milestones and deliverables.
