launchATA engineers became involved with the launch vehicle industry in the mid-1970s when they were asked to help understand vibration issues that were impacting the development of the Space Shuttle main engines. Over the last thirty years, ATA’s role in the launch vehicle community has expanded to include many aspects of the design and development of launch vehicles. A particular area of expertise is the prediction of the structural and thermal loads that the vehicles are exposed to during launch and ascent and using these loads to design structures that can survive these demanding dynamic environments.

Specific services that ATA provides to this industry includes:
