Be Quick, But Dont Hurry: Atlas Team Delivers by Randolph L. Kendall, vice president, Launch Program Operations On a beautiful sunny morning (a rarity lately), the Atlas V rocket lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base, successfully delivering another critical national security payload to orbit. This launch on Wednesday morning was a long time coming, with the launch vehicle hardware beginning to arrive on base almost one year ago. There were multiple delays along the way, including the wildfires last fall, and ironically, another fire just a few days before launch as a result of work being done to repair damage from last falls fires. But by Tuesday afternoon, everything looked to be lining up just right for a clean launch attempt the final readiness reviews had just been completed and the launch crews were heading off to get some rest, prior to coming on station at approximately 1 a.m. Wednesday. But as seems to be the case almost every launch, a classic crossover issue emerged to make things interesting. A crossover is an issue from testing on another vehicle or hardware component not on the current vehicle, but which nonetheless must be assessed to ensure that a similar issue does not exist on this rocket. In this case an issue surfaced on a vehicle under test in Florida. Immediately, a joint team from United Launch Alliance, the Air Force, Aerospace, and several subcontractors sprang in to action. The challenge in these situations is to avoid launch fever the temptation to rush to a premature answer due to the pressure of the impending launch. In a matter of hours the team had created a detailed, rigorous fishbone analysis, and was able to demonstrate that the only credible explanation for the problem was in the ground system in Florida, and that there was no impact to todays launch. The ability of the launch team to react quickly to resolve complex issues, but to do so with the necessary discipline to ensure no additional risk to the mission, is a tribute to the incredible capability and professionalism of this launch team. John Wooden, the legendary UCLA basketball coach, was famous for always telling his players: be quick, but dont hurry. Good advice for a winning team, whether it is the winningest team in college basketball history, or the winningest team in space launch history. This was the 117th successful ULA launch, the 70th Atlas V launch, and the 37th National Security Space launch on an Atlas V rocket.
