On April 9, United Launch Alliance (ULA) announced formation of a new organization focused on supporting NASA’s human spaceflight programs.
“We look forward to working with NASA and our commercial crew customers to leverage our unprecedented success record with Atlas V and Delta IV to meet the nation’s need for assured access and crew safety for missions to the International Space Station and other destinations,” said the head of the new business unit, Dr. George Sowers.
The new organization will be based in Denver, Colorado, with support centers at key NASA locations around the United States. The unit is intended to support NASA and its partners in developing solutions for human transportation to low Earth orbit and for exploration missions.
ULA was formed in 2006 as a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and The Boeing Company. It maintains three families of launch vehicles: the Atlas V, Delta II, and Delta IV.
