John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Launch Day Roles and Responsibilities

  • NASA Launch Manager (NLM) – Chuck Dovale – MDC

    • The NLM is the highest NASA authority for the mission. The NLM is responsible for ensuring that the countdown and launch decision process are properly conducted. This responsibility requires "Go / No-Go" concurrence from the following elements:

      • NASA Chief Engineer (NASA CE) - NASA Engineering and Analysis status of launch vehicle and countdown.

      • NASA Mission Manager (MiM) - Assessment of launch service and spacecraft readiness.

      • Safety & Mission Assurance Manager (SMA) - Quality and Safety assessment of the countdown operations and overall launch decision process.

      • Spacecraft Mission Director (SMD) - Overall assessment of spacecraft readiness.

      • NASA Advisory Manager (NAM) - Consultation / assessment of the launch process and countdown (advisory only).

    • The NLM provides NASA's "Go / No-Go" for Launch to the Mission Director.


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Launch Day Roles and

Responsibilities (continued)

  • NASA Chief Engineer (NASA CE) – James Wood – LVDC-2

    • The NASA CE is responsible for advising the NLM of any concerns with status and readiness of the launch vehicle. This status and assessment is obtained from the KSC Engineering Team. The NASA CE provides the NASA Engineering “Go / No-Go” status to the NLM.

  • NASA Mission Manager (MiM) – Garrett Skrobot – MDC

    • The NASA MiM receives information from the SMD on issues pertaining to overall spacecraft health, status of operational network, and/or progress of spacecraft anomaly resolution. The NASA MiM may provide information to the the SMD on issues pertaining to the progress of countdown operations. The NASA MiM gives a “Go / No-Go” status to the NLM.


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Launch Day Roles and

Responsibilities (continued)

  • Safety & Mission Assurance Manager (SMA) – Rick Boutin – MDC

    • The SMA Manager of the Safety & Mission Assurance Office is responsible for monitoring NASA flight assurance requirements during the launch countdown process and ensuring the countdown is conducted according to proper procedures. This responsibility includes assessments and “Go / No-Go” status to the NLM utilizing inputs from the KSC Flight Assurance Specialist. The SMA Manager also serves as the integrator of both launch vehicle and spacecraft independent assessments, and as such represents NASA Headquarters Chief of Safety & Mission Assurance Office in the launch process.


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Launch Day Roles and

Responsibilities (continued)

  • Spacecraft Mission Director (SMD) – Frank Snow – MDC

    • The SMD is responsible for the overall assessment of the THEMIS Spacecraft. The SMD has the responsibility on launch day for the THEMIS Spacecraft. The SMD will receive spacecraft status and recommendations from the THEMIS launch support team and is responsible for the following:

      • Overseeing the spacecraft launch countdown

      • Providing the NLM with scrub or hold direction for spacecraft anomalies

      • Informing the NLM of spacecraft status

      • Informing the NLM of network status

      • Concurring that countdown anomalies are satisfactorily resolved

      • Providing to the NLM concurrence for continuation of countdown operations

      • Providing the NLM with a final THEMIS Spacecraft "Go / No-Go"


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Launch Day Roles and

Responsibilities (continued)

  • NASA Advisory Manager (NAM) – Joe Lackovich – MDC

    • The NAM leads a team composed of NASA personnel who are experienced in launch operations. The Advisory Team provides an assessment of launch countdown and launch team performance, and assures that the launch decision process is properly executed. The team consists of:

      • Steve Francois KSC LSP Program Manager (KPM)

      • Bill Parsons KSC Center Director (KCD)

      • Bill Wrobel Headquarters Management (HQM)

      • Oscar Toledo KSC Senior Advisor (KSA)


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Launch Day Roles and

Responsibilities (continued)

  • NASA Spacecraft Coordinator (NSC) – Bill Van Dyke – OB

    • The NASA Spacecraft Coordinator is a member of the NASA/KSC Launch Manager’s staff.

      • During the countdown, the NSC is positioned at the spacecraft control console in the 1 SLS Operations Building.

      • The NSC is responsible for monitoring all satellite operations required by the countdown manual.

      • The NSC coordinates status with the Spacecraft Test Conductor located in LVDC-3 and reports status to the LCDR.


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Launch Day Roles and

Responsibilities (continued)

  • Mission Director (MD) – Rich Murphy – MDC

    • The MD is the highest ULA authority for the mission. The MD is responsible for ensuring that the launch countdown and launch decision processes are properly conducted. The MD “Go / No-Go” assessment for launch comes from the following elements:

      • NASA Launch Manager (NLM) - provides NASA’s “Go / No-Go” to launch

      • ULA Director of Engineering (DE) - provides launch vehicle technical

        “Go / No-Go”

      • Operations Integrator (OI) - provides status of remote instrumentation sites/aircraft during launch countdown

      • MDC Operations Director (MOD) - provides communications and telemetry lab “Go / No-Go”

      • Air Force Site Director (AFSD) - provides 45SW/1SLS “Go / No-Go” for SLC17 resource protection

      • ULA’s Launch Director (LD) - provides launch vehicle and countdown status from the OB*

    • Following the launch poll, the MD receives final authorization to launch from the Space Lift Commander (SLCC) and then provides final authorization to launch to the LD.

      * only for SLCC poll

Launch Windows

Due to Mission Assurance COLA analysis, this window has been adjusted by

“rounding up” the opening and “truncating” the closing of windows listed in the DTO.

It also reflects the 18 second penalty on opening/closing based on CG offset evaluation.

Protocol for Calling Holds

  • Prior to T-4 minutes and counting

    • Problems or concerns encountered during this time will be discussed with the NASA Launch Manager (NLM) on NASA Launch Manager Channel (NLM Net)

    • The NASA Launch Manager (NLM) will advise the ULA Mission Director (MD) of any problems or concerns being worked

    • If it is determined the problem or concern can not be resolved, the count will not be resumed at T-4 minutes


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Protocol for Calling Holds (continued)

  • After resuming the count at T-4 minutes

    • Subsequent to T-4 minutes and counting, personnel observing a condition which exceeds a launch constraint will use the communications system to call for a hold on the Launch Ops Channel. Such announcements should be as follows

      • “Hold! Hold! Hold! Called by (console or title) for (reason)”

      • Example: “Hold!Hold!Hold! Called by Spacecraft Mission Director for Spacecraft Redline” in section 12 of Console Notebook

    • The Launch Conductor will respond by stopping the clock and immediately recycling back to T-4 minutes and holding; and then will ask for further explanation

    • The word “hold” is not to be used for any reason except to stop the launch


Weather constraints and collision avoidance

Weather Constraintsand Collision Avoidance


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Weather Constraints

UPDATE BASED UPON WINDS MEMO

  • MST Removal

    • Ground winds must be less than 39 knots as measured at the 90 foot elevation on tower 002

  • Launch

    • Standard ELV weather launch commit criteria

      • As documented in Section 14 of console notebook

    • Ground winds

      • Within 4 minutes of Launch (allowable peak winds)

      • Constraint #5 in Section 14 of console notebook


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Collision Avoidance (COLA)

  • Collision Avoidance refers to “Inhabited/Non-inhabited Manned

  • and “Mission Assurance (M.A.) ” conjunctions

    • Manned objects (conjunctions) include: Shuttle, ISS, and Shenzhou

      • Manned conjunctions are a mandatory avoidance for safety (a range

      • requirement, not waiverable)

      • The range receives the data direct from CMOC (Cheyenne Mt. Operations

      • Center) at L-4 hrs (also at L-48 hrs and L-24 hrs in support of launch day)

      • The range is responsible for evaluating the data and providing the final

      • manned conjunctions to the ULA/NASA launch team at approximately L-3 hrs

    • Mission assurance includes: active & inactive satellites

      • Mission assurance conjunctions are a mandatory avoidance

      • NASA receives the data at L-8 hrs (also at L-48 hrs and L-24 hrs)

      • NASA is responsible for evaluating the data and providing a final M.A.

      • COLA decision to ULA at L-6 hrs

  • THEMIS Spacecraft Recycle Requirements

    • Same day recycle

      • Spacecraft will remain on internal power

    • 24 hour recycle

      • Return to external power

      • Recharge Batteries – Remotely (Does Not Require Fairing Access)

    • 48 hour recycle

      • Same as 24 hour recycle

    • Multiple scrub limits

      • Same as 24 hour recycle

      • If extended delay

      • Continue to Recharge Batteries – Remotely (Does Not Require Fairing Access)

Launch Mandatory & Required Constraints

  • According to NASA Policy, mandatory constraints / assets are not to be waived after initiation of the terminal count at L-180 / T-150 minutes.

  • In the terminal count,

    • LV assets defined as Required can be waived by the MD with concurrence from the NLM.

    • S/C assets defined as Required can be waived by the SMD with concurrence from the NLM.

    • Integrated constraints defined as Required can be waived with concurrence from the MD, SMD, and NLM (Mission Management Team)

  • After T-4 minutes, a hold for loss of Required asset shall not be called, unless pre-coordinated by the Mission Management Team.


Lv mandatory assets for launch excluding range safety
LV Mandatory Assets for Launch Constraints(Excluding Range Safety)

Launch will not occur unless all mandatory assets, including any notes, are satisfied.

The OPR shall not call a “HOLD” for loss of a mandatory asset after T-3 seconds


S c mandatory assets for launch excluding range safety
S/C Mandatory Assets for Launch Constraints(Excluding Range Safety)

Launch will not occur unless all mandatory assets, including any notes, are satisfied.

THEMIS Launch Commit Criteria contained in UCB Doc THM_MINT_PROC_077 Rev J dated Feb 2, 2007


Lv required assets for launch excluding range safety
LV Required Assets for Launch Constraints(Excluding Range Safety)

Launch management must decide whether to waive any unavailable Required asset.

The OPR shall not call a hold for loss of Required asset after T-4 (unless pre-coordinated by the Mission Management Team)


S c required assets for launch excluding range safety
S/C Required Assets for Launch Constraints(Excluding Range Safety)

Launch management must decide whether to waive any unavailable Required asset.

Mission Rehearsal Focus Constraints

  • MDR objective is to exercise the ability of the Launch Management Team to communicate effectively in a simulated Launch Countdown environment

  • MDR will exercise the Anomaly Resolution process through the use of “GREEN CARDS”

  • Primary focus will be on Launch Management and Spacecraft Team performance for Integrated Anomaly Resolution


John f kennedy space center delta ii nls

Mission Rehearsal Process Constraints

  • GREEN CARDS generated by Rehearsal Assessment Team (RAT) and classified as “RAT EYES ONLY”

  • GREEN CARD will be distributed to console operator by member of RAT or will be called into play by a member of the RAT

  • MDR will be controlled by Simulation Supervisor (SIM SUP) on Launch Ops NET

  • SIM SUP can suspend or stop Anomaly discussion by calling “KINGS X”

  • Real World Anomalies/Issues take priority over simulation
