Atlas V Launch Vehicle Takes LaBarge Wiring Harnesses

LaBarge
: 29 July, 2010  (Application Story)
LaBarge will supply the United Launch Alliance with wiring harnesses for use on the Atlas V launch vehicle for launching satellites
LaBarge has received a $4.9 million contract from United Launch Alliance (ULA) to continue to produce complex wiring harnesses for the Atlas V launch vehicle. ULA is a joint venture of The Boeing Company and Lockheed Martin Corporation to support US government missions in space with reliable and cost-effective launch service solutions.

For the past 17 years, LaBarge has made wiring harnesses and select hardware assemblies for the Atlas family of launch vehicles, which take satellites into orbit. This past February marked the 20th Atlas V launch since the program began in 2002, and the 80th consecutive launch in the Atlas family supported by LaBarge. The Atlas V was developed for the US Air Force's Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) program. ULA's Atlas, along with the Delta IV and Delta II, provides launch services for Air Force, NASA and National Reconnaissance Office missions. NASA recently awarded ULA a $6.7 million contract to develop an early detection system as part of NASAís Commercial Crew Development (CCDev) Program for human space flight.

Production on the new contract is taking place in Berryville, Ark., and is expected to continue through late 2013.
