NASA has developed an infrastructure at its Kennedy Space Center, Fla. that will be used to help prepare government and commercial spacecraft for future space exploration missions.

Agency personnel have completed design and system reviews of the facility’s spaceport under the Ground Systems Development and Operations program, NASA said Wednesday.

The spaceport is built to support development work on space vehicles and rockets, including the Orion manned capsule and the Space Launch System.

“The preliminary design review is incredibly important, as it must demonstrate the ground systems designs are on track to process and launch the SLS and the Orion from Kennedy,” said Mike Bolger, a NASA program manager.

NASA intends for these platforms to help the agency send cargo and astronauts to missions beyond low-Earth orbit.
