Cape Canaveral AFS FL (AFNS) Mar 11, 2015
The 45th Space Wing held a Multi-Vehicle Launch Support Center grand opening ceremony March 4, 2015, at the 45th Space Wing's Headquarters building here.
The renovated center is now equipped with 30 computers, 60 monitors, six projection screens and countdown clocks to provide video and data during launch countdowns.
"We commemorate the history of the Cape in this facility, we celebrate our current partnerships and capabilities, and we contemplate the possibilities going forward, not only dreaming of the possibilities of the spaceport of the future, but actually taking concrete steps to make it happen together," said Krystkowiak.
He said the support center could be converted into a full launch control center if a new commercial customer wanted to use it for that purpose.
"The facility is primed and ready to support future customers," he said. "Its utilizations have the potential to expand with the future outlook of the Cape Canaveral Spaceport."
