ULA Delta II Booster Arrives for ICESat-2 Mission

Posted May 22, 2018 at 4:55 pm




At NASA’s Building 836, the Spacecraft Labs Telemetry Station at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta II booster is removed from its shipping container on Monday, April 16, 2018. Once it was offloaded, preliminary checkouts and preflight processing began in preparation for the agency’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2.

Liftoff from Space Launch Complex-2 at Vandenberg is scheduled for Sept. 12, 2018, and will be the last for the venerable Delta II rocket. The spacecraft, which is being built and tested by Orbital ATK in Gilbert, Arizona, will carry a single instrument called the Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System, or ATLAS. The ATLAS instrument is being built and tested at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt Maryland.

Once in orbit, the satellite is designed to measure the height of a changing Earth, one laser pulse at a time, 10,000 laser pulses a second. ICESat-2 will help scientists investigate why, and how much, Earth’s frozen and icy areas, called the cryosphere, are changing.

NASA’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, arrived at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Tuesday, June 12, fr om the Northrop Grumman facility in Gilbert, Arizona. The satellite will be offloaded in its shipping container from the heavy transport truck and moved into the Astrotech Space Operations facility wh ere it will be processed and prepared for its mission.

ICESat-2 is scheduled to launch Sept. 12, 2018, on the final United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket, from Space Launch Complex-2 at Vandenberg.

Once in orbit, the satellite is designed to measure the height of a changing Earth, one laser pulse at a time, 10,000 laser pulses a second. ICESat-2 will help scientists investigate why, and how much, Earth’s frozen and icy areas, called the cryosphere, are changing.

NASA’s ICESat-2 Arrives at Launch Site

NASA’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) arrived at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Tuesday, June 12, three months before its scheduled launch on United Launch Alliance’s final Delta II rocket. After launch, slated for Sept. 12, 2018, ICESat-2 will use a laser instrument to measure the height of Earth’s surface in unprecedented detail.

The United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket slated to launch NASA’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, has made significant progress toward liftoff, planned for Sept. 12. Prelaunch preparations are well underway at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, where the rocket is coming together at Space Launch Complex 2. Earlier this month the booster, or first stage, was lifted into place in the complex’s mobile service tower, followed by installation of the rocket’s four solid rocket motors, as well as the interstage, a connector that adjoins the first and second stages. The rocket’s second stage was lifted and installed atop the booster on Thursday, June 21.

Ice, Ice Baby! Experience the Launch of NASA’s ICESat-2, and the Final Delta II Rocket

Ice, space lasers, penguins and a workhorse rocket’s last liftoff – it’s the stuff great tweets are made of.

NASA is inviting social media users to apply for credentials to attend the launch of the agency’s Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, aboard United Launch Alliance’s Delta II rocket. Launch from Vandenberg Airforce Base near Lompoc, California is targeted for no earlier than Sept. 12.

​ICESat-2 will measure the height of our home planet, with a focus on tracking changes to the ice sheets, glaciers and sea ice of Earth’s polar regions. The satellite’s novel laser instrument measures height by timing individual photons of light to the billionth of a second, which will allow scientists to precisely measure change, including the impacts of a warming climate.

The satellite launches on ULA’s last Delta II rocket, which has previously carried NASA satellites and spacecraft including the Spirit and Opportunity Mars rovers, Landsat 7 and, in 2003, the original ICESat.

ICESat-2 Lasers Pass Final Ground Test

The next time lasers fire fr om NASA’s Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, the spacecraft will be orbiting hundreds of miles above Earth and beginning its mission to monitor changes in ice sheets, glaciers and sea ice.

On June 23, ICESat-2 engineers at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California successfully finished the final ground-based test of the lasers, which are part of the satellite’s sole instrument called the Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS). ICESat-2 is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg on Sept. 12, 2018.

ATLAS was built at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and trucked to a Northrop Grumman facility in Arizona wh ere it was integrated with the spacecraft bus that provides power, navigation and communications. The completed satellite arrived at Vandenberg on June 12.

After the successful completion of another round of “aliveness” tests turning on the satellite and instrument at the end of July, the ICESat-2 payload is scheduled to head to the launch pad in late August, according to Satrom.
