(Norfolk, VA) Today marks the beginning of the UASO Intrepid-2 mission. The Titan-34D launch vehicle "stack" is set and ready to be airlifted from its birthplace, the Martin Marietta Corp, located in Denver, Colorado. The stack will be airlifted via C-5B Galaxy cargo transport to the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station where the stack will be assembled and the assembled launch vehicle will be processed and fueled for launch on Launch Complex 40.Titan vehicle processing is accomplished at the Titan Integrate, Transfer, and Launch (ITL) facility, a complex designed with a number of advantages over other launch systems, including quick reaction time, vehicle configuration flexibility capability to accommodate a variety of payloads without extensive modifications, and vehicle launch rates. This facility eliminates the necessity for vehicles to occupy the launch pad for long time periods before launch. The ITL consists of the vertical integration building (VIB), the solid rocket motor assembly building (SMAB), solid motor assembly and readiness building (SMARF), the tank car holding area (TCHA), the motor inert storage building (MISB) and receiving areas, and Launch Complex 40 and Launch Complex 41. The complexes are designed for a "high" launch rate and it is believed that a launch rate of 18 to 20 Titan-34D missions per year is technically achievable at CCAFS if the above areas are worked extensively.
