ULA VPSS

Film-Strip-r2Since 1999, BPS has been a valuable partner to Lockheed Martin, now a part of United Launch Alliance (ULA), in support of the Atlas V Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) program. BPS initially began supporting the Atlas program at Space Launch Complex 36 (SLC-36) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL (CCAFS), and eventually moved to SLC-41 in support of the new Atlas V launch vehicle. Today, BPS provides a number of services to ULA at CCAFS as well as SLC-3E at Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA (VAFB).

Under the Visual Product Service and Support (VPSS) contract, BPS provides repair services for components of the launch pad camera control system, ongoing maintenance, sustaining engineering and corrosion control, camera equipment rentals, as well as supplemental lighting for launch rehearsals and events. In addition, BPS produces a number of post-launch deliverable video products which condense the more-than 40 video feeds of the launch into a single DVD for engineering analysis.
