SLS was tasked by the NASA Launch Services Program (LSP) to provide lightning monitoring services for Launch Complex 41 (LC-41), where the Atlas V family of vehicles are launched. NASA payloads are launched from LC-41 including the Mars rovers, and the Voyager and New Horizons spacecraft. SLS is now continuously monitoring the launch pad using three Jupiter OLS and Jupiter TMS systems.
The SLS Team has many decades of lightning monitoring, lightning protection, and lightning testing experience. We apply state-of-the-art lightning research to engineering solutions.Request Information
