5 – Qualification of Zn-galvanised steel substrate for launch pad applications

Name of the system:

Qualification of Zn-galvanised steel substrate for launch pad applications

Lead entity within the SAMMBA consortium:

MT Aerospace

Attachment point within the process chain of the Spaceport operator:

To be used in any steel structure on the launch pad

Major benefit [KPI] within the process chain: [cost reduction/processing time reduction/reliability
increase – preferably with quantitative figures]

Increase in reliability: Long-life
Increase in availability: reduced maintainence

Anticipated R&D vector for the near/mid/long-term:

Near-term: industrialisation of structures
Mid-term: implementation on launch pad

Modularity granted with the following standards:

The Zn-galvanised steel substrate doesn’t require special modifications and can be used at any spaceport

Interoperability granted with the following standards:

Mechanical structures

Systems interfaced:

Launcher, Launch base, AGV, mechanical structures
