Spacelift Range System (SLRS)
The Spacelift Range System (SLRS) program provides systems engineering test and integration, development, and sustainment functions for all range instruments supporting US Government and commercial launches for an integrated Spacelift Range System located on the east and west coasts. This includes completing the modernization of the instrumentation segment and the automation of the ranges, depot-level maintenance, architectural engineering, and overall systems test and integration provides support to the Spacelift Range System throughout the acquisition lifecycle. This support includes the following:
- Systems Engineering and Integration (SE&I). SE&I includes architecture management; systems requirements management; total ownership cost analysis; specialty engineering; systems test and integration; interface management; system verification and validation; Reliability, Maintainability, and Availability (RMA) trends and analysis; deficiency analysis; operational system integration; configuration management; and data management.
- Depot Maintenance (DM). DM includes on-site depot level maintenance, off-site depot level maintenance, and software depot maintenance.
- Product Engineering (PE). PE includes development engineering, sustaining engineering, engineering analysis, quick reaction engineering, and full scale engineering development. A primary product of Product Engineering is the SLRS Instrumentation Modernization, a fully integrated modernization of a myriad of instrumentation located at both the Eastern Range and the Western Range. This instrumentation includes ground based telemetry, command systems, weather systems, large scale and mobile optics, and radar systems.
Work is done in Cape Canaveral, FL; Patrick AFB, FL; Vandenberg AFB, CA; and Colorado Springs, CO for the US Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center.
