Atlas V CST-100: Space Launch Complex-41 Pad Modifications

The Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 spacecraft, which will launch atop ULA’s Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral’s Space Launch Complex (SLC)-41, is under development by Boeing. CST-100 will be certified to fly crews to and from the International Space Station. The team’s innovative designs for a Crew Access Tower and Crew Access Arm allow flight crews to safely ingress and egress the CST-100 capsule. Each segment of the new tower and arm will be built at an off-site location and assembled at the pad between launches. The tower and other elements will take approximately 18 months and will not impact any scheduled launches at the pad.
