A half-scale model of the Orion Crew Module is lifted at the Landing and Impact Research (LandIR) Facility Tuesday, Sept. 22, at NASA Langley Research Center in preparation for a pendulum swing test where it will land on Kennedy Space Center simulated sand. The test helps engineers understand how a contingency land landing on sand would impact the crew module after a launch pad abort scenario. Credit: NASA/Sean Smith

In December, a 5 percent scale model of the Orion Launch Abort Vehicle was installed in Langley's Unitary Plan Wind Tunnel for supersonic jet effects testing. The model was painted with a new pressure sensitive paint and illuminated to produce surface static pressure maps in the locations of the attitude control motor nozzles and the aft-body interaction regions.

Mick Hartzheim of the Fabrication Development Technology Branch is busy populating the DC-DC Converter Board which is part of the Power Distribution Unit for the Orion Navigation Sensor Detailed Test Objective (DTO). Langley's role in the Orion Navigation Sensor DTO is to provide system integration, testing, system engineering and overall project management. The project is about reducing risks associated with the first use of the navigation sensors on the Orion crew capsule that will dock with...
