NASA Space Launch System

NASA’s Space Launch System, or SLS, is an advanced launch vehicle for a new era of exploration beyond Earth’s orbit into deep space. SLS, the world’s most powerful rocket, will launch astronauts in the NASA’s Orion spacecraft on missions to an asteroid and eventually to Mars, while opening new possibilities for other payloads including robotic scientific missions to places like Mars, Saturn and Jupiter. Offering the highest-ever payload mass and volume capability and energy to speed missions through space, SLS will be the most powerful rocket in history and is designed to be flexible and evolvable, to meet a variety of crew and cargo mission needs.

Victory Solutions is directly supporting this Marshall Space Flight Center-led development of SLS in the following areas:

  • Architecture development
  • System engineering
  • Program integration 
  • Cost estimating 
  • Configuration management
  • Materials testing
  • Configuration evolution 
  • Performance analysis
  • Risk management
  • Preliminary design

Victory Solutions understands how to manage complex as well as proprietary data handling and integration. For example, we have methodically used the Cradle Requirements Management and Systems Engineering database over the last two years to structure the project schema and data. Victory Solutions can now show complete traceability between functions, requirements, constraints, verification statements, interfaces, and analysis models for items that are critical to the design and build of the SLS vehicle. This traceability is key to holding the project on schedule and to budget.

First launch from Kennedy Space Center is planned for late 2018. More information can be found at: http://www.nasa.gov/exploration/systems/sls/
