SLC-3E Movable Service Tower Modifications

In 1990, while he was Principal and Chief Engineer at Hamilton Engineering, Gil Lund was responsible for the design of the mechanical systems in the SLC-3E Movable Service Tower. For the new 2003 Atlas V modification, we were initially responsible for the main folding platform modifications. In addition, we were also tasked to design a new elevating access platform system to access the Atlas V avionics pod area.

The Atlas V operations required significant additions to the MST high pressure GN2 systems. Our team was tasked with hardware design, layout, detailing and field installation follow up of the expanded system.
