SLS VERIFIES NEW LAUNCH COMPLEX 46 LIGHTNING PROTECTION SYSTEM
SLS performed the lightning protection system design for Space Florida’s Launch Complex 46 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. After the system was fully constructed, SLS performed a full lightning protection inspection to verify compliance with the NFPA-780 and AFI 32-1065 standards. The inspection included a full suite of bonding, ground-to-earth resistance, and loop resistance measurements. Launch Complex 46 will support NASA’s Orion Abort Ascent (AA-2) mission in June 2019.
