John Mulholland: Boeing Tests CST-100 Vehicle Adapter, Emergency Detection System

Boeing Logo w-borderBoeing (NYSE: BA) has concluded a series of software and hardware reviews for the company’s crew transport spacecraft under NASA’s requirements.

The company completed the wind tunnel tests for the launch vehicle adapter that works to connect the Crew Space Transportation-100 spacecraft to a United Launch Alliance-built Atlas V rocket, Boeing said Thursday.

The Atlas V rocket also passed the review for its emergency detection system that is designed for communications and emergency procedures.

“These tests help to validate that the launch vehicle adapter and emergency detection system are fully functioning and able to ensure a safe launch for our future passengers, ” said John Mulholland, vice president and program manager of Boeing’s commercial programs.

NASA is scheduled to perform a software review in the spring as part of its Commercial Crew Integrated Capability agreement with Boeing.
