NASA Human Space Exploration: Opportunity Nears to Reassess Launch Vehicle and Ground Systems Cost and Schedule
Cristina T. Chaplain (au)
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is developing systems needed to support deep-space exploration by humans. The Space Launch System (SLS) will be NASAäó»s first exploration-class launch vehicle in over 40 years to propel astronauts and cargo beyond low-Earth orbit. The Exploration Ground Systems (EGS) program is developing systems and infrastructure to support both SLS and the crew capsule, known as Orion. Together, the first planned SLS flight, the ground systems for that effort, and the first two Orion flights are estimated to cost almost $23 billion. In 2015, it was found that SLSäó»s limited cost and schedule reserves were placing the program at increased risk of being unable to deliver the launch vehicle on time and within budget. This report assesses the extent to which (1) SLS has made progress meeting cost and schedule commitments; and (2) EGS has made progress in completing modifications to key facilities and equipment.
