ULA taps company to modify pad 41
Work to redesign a launch complex at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to support human flights could create 250 to 300 aerospace and construction jobs in Brevard County, United Launch Alliance says.
ULA is expected today to announce it has selected Hensel Phelps Construction Co. of Orlando to help plan modifications to Space Launch Complex 41 that would enable commercial crew missions on Atlas V rockets.
“We look forward to working with Hensel Phelps to take the next steps in launching crew from SLC-41 and providing safe and reliable crew launch services as early as 2015,” said George Sowers, ULA vice president of Human Launch Services, in a statement obtained by FLORIDA TODAY. ULA confirmed the statement.
