All Points Logistics Selected as Major Subcontractor on the NASA Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle Contract


Merritt Island, FL, November 02, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Lockheed Martin has selected All Points Logistics LLC (APL) as a major subcontractor on the NASA Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) contract. APL will be responsible for software lifecycle development, integration and test support for Orion’s Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV). “We’re very excited to be part of the support team for such a pioneering project,” said Steve Lloyd, APL Chief Engineer. “Orion represents a leap forward in manned space exploration.”

Orion is the focus of NASA’s retooling efforts as it sets its sights on exploring and traveling to distant parts of the Milky Way. As part of NASA’s new plans to explore beyond low Earth orbit and into deep space, Orion will transport astronauts to Mars and beyond and is tentatively scheduled for launch in September 2014. The first manned space mission is expected to take place after 2020. NASA has invested over $5 billion on the Orion space capsule to date.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.
