Representatives from MS Aerospace recently completed a scheduled visit with its customer, United Launch Alliance. ULA is a very important partner for the space industry.
ULA provides launch services using three expendable launch systems-Delta II, Delta IV and Atlas V. These launch systems carry a variety of payloads including weather, telecommunications and national security satellites.
Lockheed Martin retains the rights to market the Atlas commercially and Boeing retains similar rights for the Delta. ULA is a Joint Venture between Lockheed and Boeing that is scheduled to end in December 2011. At that time, ULA will be independent.
