ATK, LockMart and PW Rocketdyne Present Proposal For Ares I Upper Stage

Known as "Team Ares," the core companies are natural partners to support NASA on this upper stage effort, demonstrating unparalleled experience in system and subsystem design, development, manufacturing, integration, test, and risk management for human-rated hardware. The team members have participated in every U.S. human space flight program throughout NASA's history.

Alliant Techsystems, Lockheed Martin, and Pratt and Whitney Rocketdyne have presented to NASA an oral summary of their proposal for the Ares I Upper Stage. The proposal has been delivered in stages over the last month and culminated with the submittal of the cost volume last week.

The three companies have developed a complementary relationship, leveraging their strong experience and capabilities on NASA Human Space Flight programs to provide the Ares I project a springboard to minimize program costs, maintain aggressive development and test schedules, and reduce the technical risk going forward.

"We have been preparing for this procurement for nearly a year and announced our core team back in September 2006," said Ron Dittemore, President of ATK Launch Systems Group. "We have also built a strong team of subcontractors that have been hand-selected to round out our team. Together, we have developed a proposal that presents a seamless effort, and we are ready to perform on this crucial contract for NASA and our Nation."

"By combining our core competencies and working together in a seamless manner, we can significantly reduce integration issues and system complexity -- and help NASA achieve the vision for Space Exploration at this critical point in the program," added Dittemore.
