Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Taking Shape

Lockheed Martin Space Systems engineer Terry Kampmann (left) and lead technician Jack Farmerie work on assembly and test of NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft bus in a cleanroom at the company's Denver facility. In coming months, the orbiter's science instruments will be integrated and tested, followed by environmental testing of the completed spacecraft. Launch of Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is scheduled for August 2005.

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter project is managed for the NASA Science Mission Directorate, Washington, by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena. Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver, is prime contractor for the project.
